Subject: [Tutor] Movies from jpg files
To: tutor at python.org

Dear All,
>I have found a fine Axis 2100 webcamera on my shelf, that was out of 
>It uploads jpg images every minutes to an ftp server now.
>I would like to build up a movie from the pictures for easier review.
>I don't know which movie format can be built up easier,
>.jpeg, quicktime .mov, .wmv, .avi or anything else.
>It would be fine to use a format that has compression advantage compared 
>the raw
>volume of jpg files. It could be possible as the camera placed statically 
>so the images
>are very similar. 
>May you recommend me which format could be used ?
>May you recommend anything to build them easy ?
>Yours sincerely,
>János Juhász
