Camera demo for Linux platform


I tried the camera example on mac and saw that same is not available on Linux. Is there some JUCE camera example to get started. I am developing an application on Linux with the use of camera and juce seems to be a good framework to use.


At the moment JUCE doesn’t support webcams on Linux… although it could via Video4Linux.

I think a basic Linux camera support using Juce could be useful for doing experiments on camera overlay and juce audio and dsp features in places like industrial and automotive applications. Would be nice to add that request in upcoming releases.

Video4Linux is not so complicated. When comes to industrial applications on embedded platforms: there are implementation differences for different platforms so practically every platform requires slightly different approach (way of accessing buffer, image formats etc.) so some general approach would require changes anyway - that’s my experience.
