Webcam barcode scanning

Use your webcam as a barcode scanner, to add or find books by ISBN.

  • Scan barcodes with your webcam
    Just use the live camera view to point your webcam at a barcode
    and let our software detect the barcode that is in view.
  • Use the webcam scanner to add books by barcode
    Pop-up the scan window and scan ISBN barcodes,
    either using Direct Search or scanning into the Queue.
  • Or use it in the main screen to find books by barcode
    Scan an ISBN barcode while in the main screen,
    to quickly search your local database by barcode.
  • Works best with auto-focus or manual-focus webcams
    Fixed focus cameras will not work well (or at all).

Fixes: Edit Multiple, Infinite Scrolling, Sorting

June 16th, 2015

Several small fixes today:

  • Editing multiple items with really many items selected (say over 1,000) didn’t work.
    Now it does. But still, editing many items in one go may be slow.
  • On large desktop screen, with the browser window set full screen, the infinite scrolling system didn’t work.
    It immediately stopped loading after the first set of items was shown. Happened only in Images and Card Views though, in List View all was well. Fixed now.
  • When changing the sorting by clicking a column header, the sort direction of the previous sort column was used. Now it correctly resets to ascending sorting when changing to a different sort field.
