Just use chart minder to capture the screen every 'x' seconds or whatever interval.
Then you can write a very simple script to just upload the most recent .png to your website (ftp for example).
On the HTML side, you can do a very crude meta http refresh to see the new image. Make sure you set all meta headers to disable caching if you aren't changing the filename, but just overwriting.
Obviously, far more complex solutions exist such as inline refresh via AJAX, or pushing directly from NT via a socket instead of scripting.
vvhg's solution has the built-in upload already there. Not sure about ratfinks.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

It sounds as if it might do the job (reply 3 with the VBscript) but of course I don't know VBscript
Would this do the job?

"automatic screen capture + ftp?
I'm looking for a program that will take a screenshot at a specified interval and then upload that file to a ftp location. I've looked and after installing 8 different ones claiming to do what i'm looking for, i decided to come here and ask if someone knows a program that will do just that. i found one that is 500$ and that's way too much if you ask me.

"You are looking for 2 things, which are both freely available. This would be easier with open source software than it would be on windows, but its possible with simple scripts in windows with scheduled tasks.
Yes, that's basically the approach I think would fit best but forget VB (I don't know it either.) I think maybe ChartMinder (but I may need to add the same filename option) and try Fling or similar for the FTP side.
Assumes you have a website setup and password credentials that you can use for normal website upload/updates.
I'm assuming Fling (or similar) can trigger just on detection of a new Windows directory/file modified timestamp.
New release due of CM can take images from any monitor/region independent of NT chart but might still be worth you looking at Jing or similar in case one of the commercial (and often free entry-level) products already has a built-in non NT dependent offering anyway.
We'll have a look this week. I'm best side of a decent Cab Sauv and some good telly. FIO rocks. I've got new socks.

uploaded screensnaps with ShareX 11.3 and made the meta refresh page (both set for 5 sec intervals)
This morning I used ShareX to capture 10sec of screen action (I.mp4). The png shows as the same size 194kb
So I'm wondering about uploading 10 sec mp4 clips and then somehow have the webpage play those.
Is this a better way to go?
(I want to have a system where the screensnaps or mp4 are at the web server and served from there - not where the webserver is just a connecting link to my local machine (which is how I think the video conferencing works?)
