I made ConquerCam as a simple webcam upload tool for Windows. When I started development only a few others existed where “webcam32” were the most popular one. However the UI was so bad that I didn’t wanted to use it and so in the beginning of April 2000 I started doing some research on how to make an alternative – on May 25, 2000 ConquerCam 1.0 was released.
ConquerCam was a decent success and with a $10 registration fee, a lot of people found it a great alternative to webcam32 which was priced much higher (can’t remember the exact price). With success comes a need of improving and adding more features and thus I worked more or less consistently on improving ConquerCam until end of 2003.
I initially started the project to allow me to very easily take a photo from my camera and upload it to an FTP server. Over time I added surveillance features such as region-shaped motion detection, video- and sound recording, email notifications, etc.
