USB Webcam on Linux
This is a simple program which reads a stream of images from a USB webcam
and displays it on the screen. Version 1.1 and on can capture an
image and save it on disk.
- Initial version is an old one based on old
gfx library. It can handle a rather old Logitech webcam and not much else.
- Version 1.0 is based on gfx-2.10.
It can handle Inca-467 webcam with S920 picture format.
- Version 1.1 is based on gfx-2.11.
It handles the MJPG image format as well as higher resolutions. I tested
it with a A4Tech PK-910H webcam and it works OK.
I learned one thing about the MJPG format: It's just JPEG. Sure, it doesn't
have JFIF or JPEG ASCII magic at the beginning, but libjpeg can decode it
without any problems.
