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

guvcview

Works! and has many interesting controls

  • Can capture video
  • Can capture audio – GNOME sound mixer panel applet can control audio input level and it sounds good. Mute works too!
  • Additional controls – including focus – are enabled after running guvcview as root once

Programming: http://www.quickcamteam.net/software/libwebcam

Features

Autofocus

Autofocus is built into the wintendo drives, thus does not work in Linux.

Q: How can we manually control focus in Linux?
A: There is some info about this on quickcamteam.net related to libwebcam
