Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Prg to upload image snaps of a NT chart

I would like to know what to use in a google search for a program that transfers images from a video feed = an NT chart to a website sending screensnaps each 1/2 second. So I'm NOT looking to livelink my video of my NT screen but rather a program that samples the video taking screen snaps and uploads those screensnaps to a website.

(many years ago I did have one that uploaded my video cam to the website when the pipes were thin and it was for win 3.11 LOL I think it poled a memory location range and transfer that? )

First, you didn't put this in the NT category - I will move it for you.

Try this:
https://futures.io/elite-circle/23967-screenshot-utility-ninjatrader-vvscreenshot.html

There are others also, but I'm having trouble remembering their names. Maybe someone else can assist. But the above one can programatically upload and save screenshots from NT, even making posts directly to FIO on a schedule or saving them in a directory.

I am pretty sure I tweeted or posted to facebook another new one, but can't easily find it right now as I am not in my office. Check our social media recent posts.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
ChartMinder is great (thanks @gregid, I'm biased ) but you could also look at Jing et al, and some of the other screen sharing offerings, for example I seem to remember that Mikogo https://www.mikogo.com/ allows you to share a single application or window instead of a whole screen.

Cheers

no not static snaps

So what I wish to do is to "continuously" upload screen-snaps that replace each other at the website creating the effect of streaming video. This would be like (but not equal to) an animated gif. The user would visit a webpage and within it was embedded a "live" streaming chart - on a 1/2 sec refresh cycle.

I use NT but I did not mean this as an NT only question - that is How to send any screen as a simulation of a video? - not specifically NT - which is why I didn't put it in the NT forum.

So repeating:
I am looking for the correct way to search on the internet for a program that continuously (say each 1/2 second) uploads images from a local machine to a webpage, each image replacing the prior one.

I am not looking for video conferencing or online presentation program.
It is NOT embedded video. If the connection between the local machine (that is pushing the images) and the webserver is broken, the last image served to the website would be there - not a blank.
The difference would be that is the server carries the workload of the traffic to any visitor to the page.

Good trading to everyone.

That was it, sorry @ratfink I couldn't remember the name and wasn't in my office so it wasn't easy to search!

Too loud man.

Just try putting 'FTP upload' into Google. Actually just noticed Bing gives better results. Noted.

Fling from NCH looks like one of many solutions. Been years since I used any but there's a lot on the first page of that search term.

You didn't say whether you are handling web security/hosting issues which is why the conference solutions can make good choices. Also they use incremental upload protocols so traffic is negligible from your machine anyway, possibly even less than a repeating file upload.

Both routes should work alright.

Thanks.

(I'm not sure what too loud means.
that it isn't an nt specifiic question?
that upload a single image screensnap isn't what I am looking for?..
that the program from a users viewpoint you would specify
- what active window
- upload refresh time
- the ftp target

and it would continue without more user input until you stopped the program?)

Good trading to everyone.

Thanks.

(I'm not sure what too loud means.

Means I found it really funny, I knew exactly what you meant the first time around but remembered when we used to fight over climate crap.

Best Wishes for the new project!
