I took the call to "killall mjpg_streamer" out of the constructor. MJPG-streamer can have multiple instances at once, so it makes sense to also allow independent instances of StreamMinder.
Renamed some slots to make use of Qt's automatic connections, which allowed me to remove 8 of the 13 connect() statements.
Made use of Qt convenience functions qPrintable() and QDir::homePath(). The former is just easier to read than what was there before; the latter is a step toward platform neutrality.
Fixed an oversight where the TCP Port spin box was being ignored.
Fixed a bug where the file output would use the "-c" (command) parameter even if the line edit was blank.

Sorry for being so slow in replying. It looks like Tom is bundling a very capable Lazarus-based front-end with MJPG-streamer now, so I don't plan on maintaining StreamMinder any further.

As seen on Linux Weekly News (http://lwn.net/Articles/288824/), the 2.6.26 Linux kernel will include the UVC driver. For people wanting to use a webcam under Linux, this means the hardest step of getting it working will be taken care of automatically. No more need to search online for the module source, download it, compile against your current kernel, and place the module binary where the kernel will find it. At most, all you'll need to do is add the module name to your /etc/modules (or similar) file to ensure it's loaded at boot time.

Tom just made a new release of MJPG-streamer that supports spca5xxx-based cameras, in addition to UVC cameras. (See http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html for a list of spca5xxx cameras.) If you have such a camera and would like it to appear in the list of devices in StreamMinder, e-mail me so I can get the details needed to make it work. It should be a simple matter, but since I don't have one of those cameras, I can't do it by myself.

Since pushing out the beta release of StreamMinder yesterday, I've decided to see what needs to be done with MJPG-streamer to get better interaction between the two programs. Specifically, I've been wanting to get MJPG-streamer's startup output to appear in one normal-looking message box, rather than a bunch of error messages.

Well, that turned out to be pretty simple by doing a quick-and-dirty hack on MJPG-streamer's source. I've proposed the changes to Tom; in the meantime, try it out for yourself:
