Does anyone know of any software that can detect motion in a pre-recorded video, and either take a snapshot or a record of the time of motion. I know that there are plenty of programs that can do this with a live video, but I have not been able to find one for pre-recorded footage - perhaps there is a way of tricking the program into thinking the pre-recorded video is in fact live?
I have many, many hours of video to watch with unpredictable activity (a bird entering a nestbox)!
Failing that, if anyone is aware of a free media player that can play multiple videos at the same time, has fast forward/rewind function, and forward and backward frame skip. I need to be able to precisely stop the video to analyse the food in the birds beak, the bird is on camera for less than a second in most cases!
