Initial Notes

Windows

After installation, the software that comes with the camera works well and can capture HD-like video very well. However, when using a third party capture application, size seems to be stuck at 320x240 pixels. Holy crap!

Linux

  • Camera detected and mounted as /dev/video0
  • Most apps are completely dysfunctional and useless (as usual)
  • uvccapture works fine
    • width and height: OK
    • Brightness: TBD
    • Contrast: TBD
    • Saturation: TBD
    • Gain: TBD
    • Supported image sizes: TBD
  • guvcview works! and has many interesting controls
    • Can capture video
    • Can capture audio
    • No focus control
