I have a program that is essentially a basic DVR. it has a 4 camera windows and some buttons that allow you to snapshot, record, or playback. minimum resolution for this program is 1024x768. thats too big for my touch screen. So, what I was wanting to do is take the 4 windows and a record (all cameras) from the original program (4eyeDeluxe.exe) and open them in OM.
Is that possible, if it is, what do I need to do?
hardware and i figured i would need it. I just need an app to take on 4 cameras off a usb device and compress and record. But I have no idea how to do that.
I'll add it to the plugin request list. We'll see where it goes from there.
If you just want to embed that program into OM you can use the ExternalNav plugin which really can embed anything:
If your trying to embed specific parts of a program then no thats not exactly possible (not just for OM-with programming in general).
OM can be whatever resolution you want, but that is going to depend on your display. The common displays for cars are 800x480 or 800x600. Since the app is minimum resolution of 1024x768, then it obviously wont work... it wont even fit on the LCD. Like I said, the best we can do is wirte our own plugin, forgoing the software completely, that can accept the feeds from the cameras and compress and record the footage. It's not going to be very high on the list, but it'll at least be on the list.
I can see some appeal to this at least starting out with a single camera feed (would most likely be used for a rear view camera). Is there a plugin interface that would be well suited to something like this? Or would one need to be developed with this in mind. The actual directshow capture shouldn't be too entirely difficult, and i think you've already got video rendering into the OpenGL surfaces, correct?
