running 2 USB webcam simultaneously
I am trying to capture images from two USB webcam simultaneously.
However everytime I run two instances of streamer like this:
streamer -c /dev/video0 -f rgb24 -r 1 -t 00:00:60 -o /home/mine/video0.avi
streamer -c /dev/video1 -f rgb24 -r 1 -t 00:00:60 -o /home/mine/video1.avi
on two different terminals, I got a kernel panic.
I have tried running the above commands as a background process (adding & at the end), so I can use a single terminal, but the result is the same: a kernel panic.
Does anybody know whether capturing images from two different USB webcams simultaneously is actually possible at all ?
Thanks for any help
BTW: my distro is slackware 10.2 with kernel 2.4.31 and my box is an AMD athlon 900 MHz and the webcam I am using are (from lsusb):
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0553:0002 STMicroelectronics Imaging Division (VLSI Vision) CPiA WebCam
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:0920 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Express
and they are running great if I am running the streamer one by one.
