    Spy Program

    Hi! I've just finished learning C++ and I want to make something to impress my familly ("What the hell are you doing all day in front of that **** computer? Get a job!"). So I've decided to make a spy app to do this things:

    1. Access the webcam and record to a file without the user to know (in background).
    2. Acces the microphone and record to a file.

    Maybe if I can do that I can impress them.
    Please, help me! How this 2 task can be acomplished?

    Please forgive me if this is not the right place to post this.

    Bye!

    I would recommend to start by making a simple program that just does the second bit - record from a microphone and store the audio in a file. When you've covered that successfully then make another application that just records the video to a file.
    Then you can make a third program that includes the functionality of these previous two applications together with any other things you think you may need for your program.

    There are several methods in capturing media on Windows, but you may want to look into the MCI interface on www.msdn.com.

    I'm an Ionic developer and doing research on Android spy apps. I want to develop such an app and looking for the best smartphone spy app. After researching tons of material online, I found mspy review over a technology blog and found this app best for me. If anyone has any other idea, please share. thanks

    Hi Victor,

    I have used this app for parental control purpose. The best feature which I found in this app was geo-fencing. It aware me every time my kid was out of a selected area. All of the features explained in the mspy review, that's why I gave the link of that webpage for readers of this thread. Thanks.
