ABOUT

“Simple” V4L2 Webcam Viewer, based on QT4. ( 4.1.1 )

It use libv4lconvert for converting between formats. ( you need this , download it from http://people.atrpms.net/~hdegoede/libv4l-0.5.1.tar.gz or from lastest tarball on linuxtv.org/ ( i test with http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jfrancois/gspca/ )

Some of the code needs a really clean up, and also brake any rules of patterns, since i merged part of old code i was using for another subprojects.

The application supports plugins for effects, and any kind of service someone could develop for. Keep in mind that, processing images ( adding effects for example ) while streaming could decrease a lot of fps.

Video Record, is also supported if you have installed: ( won’t be enabled if you dont )
