Are you great at coding for Windows? (C++)

Do you have experience in writing quality applications for Windows?

Do you want to get paid quickly, for creating a "tech demo"?

We dont require a finished product, so no "polish" is needed. If you can get it functionally working, then thats good for us and we will pay quickly!

This is also a great opportunity to qualify for lots of future work projects with us!

We actually have a much larger project (And other projects too) that you could be working on with us, this is just the start and if you do well on this, we will immediately give you additional ongoing work!

(If you also have a knowledge of FFMPEG as well, then we could have a lot of ongoing work opportunities for you after this project)

Let me explain what we need:
Due to a few technical challenges our team are having with our current project, we require someone who is excellent at coding for Windows, to help us create a "Tech Demo" that will help us with our current project.

The tech demo does not need to be polished in terms of visual presentation, it can be rough as it will JUST be used internally for us to debug issues we are having and see how you successfully managed to create the following. It may also be used in our existing application:

We require a script that can record video and audio from the users webcam, (Either built in or attached) The video must be good quality and the audio and video absolutely must stay in perfect sync.

It ideally will also allow the user to pause the webcam recording and then resume it. (Whilst still keeping the audio in perfect sync)

We ALREADY have a solution that works on the Mac OS..

Here is the criteria for the tech demo you will create:

-- The script MUST work perfectly on both Windows 7 and Vista and XP (Ideally on Windows 8 too)

-- Be easy to install and obviously has to detect the webcam/s the user has installed and work with them.

-- Record from webcam in good, clear quality. (This is vital - But please see the last point)

-- MUST keep the video and audio in sync

-- It must obviously be capable of recording for a long time (no memory leaks or crashes) and there should be no time limits to the recording.

-- It should count down before recording starting, from 3, 2, 1 and then recording starts. (So the user know exactly when recording will start)

-- It should have a preview of the webcam output whilst recording, so the user can see it "live" during recording.

-- It must be highly reliable, with no crashes, error messages or lost files

-- Once recording finishes, it should produce a video file of the recording on the desktop.

-- Must be your own code and not use any licensed code that cannot be distributed, as the tech demo you provide may be used as a part/in a finished product we create.

-- Ideally we would like the resulting file to be as useable and low file size as possible. (We want to find a happy medium between quality and file size, keeping the resulting file a relatively usable file size)

You must be confident that you can develop this specifically for the above mentioned versions of Windows.

You must, above all, be RELIABLE and be able to bug test your own work to ensure bug free code.

Again, we are NOT looking for a finished product here, it does NOT need to be polished, simply functionally complete..

You should also be able to start AND complete this quickly as this is something we require as soon as possible..
(We have a short timescale for this tech demo project, before we move on to new projects with the successful candidate)

We have funds waiting and will pay quickly once the job is completed.

What to do now?:

Please get in touch with:

- Your Skype details
- An estimated timescale to complete this job.

Congratulations, you have reached the end. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working with you soon!
