That would be so cool if B4PPC could access the web cam, or the camera. I wanted to try and write a routine that detects the devices rotation from landscape to portrait - like they do on the new HTC diamond OS
AGraham - is it theoretically technically possible to write a C library to grab frames from the camera? If so how difficult?
Repeat after me - C# is not C - B4PPC needs .NET dlls written in a .NET language and C is not a .NET language.
But yes, I'm playing with a bit of C# code I've found that captures single images from the webcam on my EEE PC using Windows native avicap32.dll. No promises but I might be able turn it into a B4PPC library once I understand what's going on.
Sorry - c#! Thats the problem with these geniuses they get very touchy! lol!
Anyway if you can get Basic4ppc to capture a jpeg that would be amazing! I think you deserve another award for doing the wave generator, but a cam function would definately be ground breaking!
Does the device connect to the cam through a serial connection? My device has 2 cams, do they both connect in the same way?
Does cams send the picture as a stream of pixels? Im curious if the camera sends it in JPEG format to the WM OS, or does it get compressed later?
