How do I make my wedding amazeballs? (User Media question)

Hello Constructababies,

I require some assistance for my upcoming wedding.

I've seen cool duders renting a photoboot to set up at their wedding party,
but I would like to go even harder in the paint and put an arcade cabinet there
with a custom game (and build-in camera).
Don't worry, the hardware and game itself is no problemo, I've got that on lock.
But I want to have a picture taken of the players at any endscreen.
With the User Media plugin I can manage that, but I can not for the life of me
find a way to automatically store the pictures locally without there being a pop-up
asking where and with what name it should be saved.

In short: after the game has taken a picture with the webcam
I want it to automatically save it locally without any dialog screens.


Is that possible? How?
Help save this marriage, please!


Thank you for helping (or at least reading),
Roel

It is a good idea for a wedding party! :D

As I haven't mastered that part, only I wish you good luck and congratulations for the marriage. ^^

If you have internet acces, you could use this plugin to send (yourself) mails with the pictures attached:

I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

Using this third-part behavior you could always turn the picture into a string, save that string locally using local storage and get all the strings/photos later (needing you to make sort of decoder as well and be aware that informations are only stored locally on a specific domain).

It can be tricky be could do the job. Otherwise, yes, downloading the picture on the fly with the browser plugin will likely have a dialog popup each time.
You could also ask the players to save the picture to a specific local hard drive location and "trust them", although there is always the possibility for human error indeed.

Thanks @lukezero, @LittleStain and @Kyatric,
but I'm shamefully fumbling with those strings and exotic third party behaviors.
So after a lot of soulsearching, contemplating of maybe calling of the wedding
and brainstorming with myself
I think I've found an alternative workaround...

In combination with a Chrome extension to automatically hide the download bar it will do the trick.

But still: thank you to all who undertook this thinking exercise with me and had me in their prayers.
