Smile video grabbing application for ARM processor


Hi All,

I am using a USB webcam from Dream Logic-AP1501,a taiwanese company.I have downloaded the driver called gspca,after googling..I am trying this USB webcam
to work on ARM9 processor,after cross compiling and porting the module, i am able to detect my USB webcam as "SONIX JPEG camera".Please suggest me an application for which i can use for this camera.I have read your webpages after googling and i came to know that ekiga is a good application,but i am facing alot of problems while compiling that utility for ARM processor.
IS there any other good webcam application for Embedded devices.I have written some application programs,and i am able to make the camera on,but i am not able capture the frames.


Thanks & Regards,
Ravi Chobey

This won't help you now, but the upcoming linux 2.6.27 kernel is going to include support for a huge number of webcams with the new uvc driver. If you can wait just a bit you might find that your cam will be supported automatically.

You might want to look at camstream and camserv, they have a few different cli programs that might be easier port to arm that would let you see the camera output remotely.
