    Multi-Cam Sources

    I seem to have a problem having 3 different capture devices. When choosing the camera icon, a small box pops up and goes to background. If I minimize DL I see a blank box that is to choose a capture device (this is a microsoft box) when I pick my camera it error's out of DL. I will try and screen capture the error box and see if anything is in the error log. If I only have the camera plugged in it's no problem. It only happens if I have more than one device. 1 microsoft life cam, roxio video capture unit w/audio and a 4 in 1 dvr stick all have correct drivers and all function in windows. It takes the camera in settings in DL no problem and saves it. Hope you can figure this one out. SNO

    You have a conflict between the webcams but where ? I suppose that each webcam use the same Id and it's not very good !!!

    Only 1 webcam so it's not a naming problem, and all products work together in a straight windows enviroment. It's only in DL is where the problem is. It seems to only expect 1 device. SNO

    Seems there was a posting about this sort of thing elsewhere. That DL and some other FE's are hard coded to run 1 camera. I don't know that the makers of the plugins figure there could be more than one camera hooked up and this may require some code changes to the plugin.

    I'm not using dashcam only camera app. In setup I choose the lifecam and it accepts it. It's something to do with windows and DL as it's a windows box that pop's up and ask's for me to choose my device, which all 3 are there when i select lifecam it hards out of DL. SNO

    I should add this is the only problem I am having. TPMS/OBD2/Weather/Phidgets, ect are all working flawlessly. And if I unplug the 4 in 1 dvr and the roxio capture device, the lifecam works flawlessly as well using the camera app. SNO

    DriveLine uses some very old windows API to connect to the video-capture device(s). Whether it's a webcam or tuner, they are all abstracted through the windows avicap32 API.

    Now, if I wanted to do things right, I'd probably use DirectX. It's just a lot more complication that I haven't taken the time to learn. Now that there's a need, I will look into it. I've been meaning to do this anyway. There's also a windows component called WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) that I will look at.

    Unfortunately, I don't see any easy temporary fix on my end. I'll look into it a bit this weekend.

    Hi guys, I want to connect a front camera in the lower grill next to the license plate, so I can see tall curbs when parking.



    As you can see the grill slots are about an inch apart, and I know I can find camera's that fit, however I want to use them in Driveline, so I can just press the camera button on the main page real quick, and don't know the best way to go.

    Should I use a webcam, or a backup camera and some kind of video capture device, and if so what would you recommend?

    I scratched my splitter by going in to a parking spot too far, so I want to use a camera instead of proximity beepers.

    Thank,
    Robert

    This is what I use with Driveline works fine. http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/ea.../overview.html I only use it for 1 camera with rca type plug the other cams I use are usb but all work fine in Driveline together. It's a little expensive but it is quality driver and capture chip. You might find a deal on it somewhere. On a side note I also have a cheap 4 rca in to 1 usb capture device and driveline see's it but only for 1 camera and no way to cycle through, basically don't waste your time with that. SNO
