hmm the only thinng that can cause still pix error wouuld be not enough RAM or HDD is full :( ... oh ye try to disable sounds when u press the button (use GUI config to disable sounds) the can crush the thingie due to memory leak... otherwise i cant really debug the old version...
As to low FPS on logitech cams, that can be due to special feature on webcams... is there is low lighting they will slow down FPS... try to increase lighting and see the fps rade goes up
As to the commands that my app accepst there are non... if you tell me how to make my app to accept comands i will add that in V2 release
Thanks for getting back so quick tempgp.
I disabled the sound and I still have the same problem with the error taking a photo. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still happens. I have enough HDD and memory so that shouldn't be causing it. It does create a jpg file in C:\RoadCameraHD which is dated and timestapmed it's just black. (and sometimes it does take the pic) Not to worry if it can't be fixed.
I'm not a developer (I'm a Senior Tester) so I'm not sure what needs to be done to enable RR and your app to work together. All I know is that there is a "sendmsg" command you can use within Road Runner to send a command to other apps. (so for example you would have a button called "exit" on the Road Camera HD skin (skin used in RR) which when pressed would send the "sendmsg" command <"sendmsg; "exit"> ("exit" being the command your app excepts)
This is just my basic understanding of how it works, someone with Road Runner development skills would be able to explain it better. Guino is the creator of Road Runner and would be able to explain what you need to do.
Keep up the good work tempgp. If you could make this skinable through Road Runner, then I'm sure everyone would switch from RRCam.
If jpeg is created (randomly) then I would assume there should be something that preventing the pix from being taken... um maybe some sort of process on ur system... not really sure...
Well V2 is completly new engine so I'll try to make sure that wont happen in new version...
As to skinable and "commandable" functions of V2, I will put my efforts to get it working. First releases of V2 will be standalone functionality concept prooves and then will add all RR integrations.
I like the project so far. I am looking for an RR plug-in that would use 4+ cameras and yours looks to be the closest to it. I hope you have a multi-camera version out soon. Keep up the good work.
What is a good USB camera to use with your project?
What is a good codec to use to capture video real time with good quality?
what a dejavu... i jsut asked this questions DS guys :)
I like xvid but from what I just found AVI files are not good for realtime capture...
when i get more info i will post here
I've been trying this out with my ps3 eyecam and it's working pretty good. The problem I have though is when I resume from standby the picture freezes. Can you add support for standby/resume?
I can give you a hand with skinning. You will have to setup up Road Camera to receive send message commands and add a fullscreen mode so all the buttons can be part of Road Runner instead.
hmm hibernate issue is easy to fix but hard to debug... VS.net doesnt like to hibernate itself.. so I better get it right from the forst time =)
tell me how I enable RR for sendmasage, and how the messagesare being sent? any protocoll or something?
i assume you have already read this and looked at the example on how to make a extenstion plugin and base plugin , this is the way to go , im no coder but these links should give you a good idea, maybe when finished offer it for the RRplugin manager to deal with the installing and so on.
Ok will read those docs an will try to add quick concept proove to asap
