IPTimelapse is camera control software designed to read jpeg snapshots from an IP cameraCanon DSLRGoPro Hero, website jpg image or local folder image.  It will archive images, auto-make a time-lapse video and optionally upload to a website. 

Use it for: Site promotion, Construction monitoring, Weather webcam, Education, security.  IPTimelapse reads images from your IP camera and automatically produces a timelapse video.  Popular cameras for IPTimelapse are Sharx, Hikvision.  IPTimelapse can be used to produce time-lapse video from a sequence of jpeg images, subsample the image set or use a date range of images.

IPTimelapse IP can optinally be triggered to read snapshots as they appear in a folder or to use those triggers to read snapshots from some other source.

IPTimelapse User Guide

IPTimelapse Screenshots


  • End-to-end image capture and processing. IPTimelapse can read snapshots:
    • Directly from your IP camera using http or rtsp
    • From a local file as C:somefolderimage.jpg
    • From a webpage as http:somesite.comimage.jpg
  • IPTimelapse will archive images, make timelapse video using h.264 compression and mp4, FTP upload images and timelapse video.
  • Add local NOAA or Wunderground weather to your snapshots as they are captured.
  • Set capture on/off time using local Sunrise/Sunset with Latitude and Longitude.
  • IPTimelapse can optionally "capture" jpeg image files as they appear in a watched folder. Thus you don't need to talk to the IP camera (or any other camera) directly if the camera can send images to a folder. When a new image appears in the folder IPTimelapse will process it. (This option activated under the Help menu)
  • Capture at one rate say every 5 seconds and upload at a slower rate say every 2 minutes thereby preserving upload bandwidth while creating an image archive for a smooth timelapse video.
  • Launch multiple program instances to control more cameras or timelapse projects
  • Can be used as a standalone timelapse software to process a jpeg image sequence
  • Add up to 3 watermarks to the image. Set position, scale, and transparency
