I was in contact with JanneH0. And we decided that i will continue the Development of his great I-Bus Plugin.
Why new Thread? Because it's difficult to add changes in his Thread. So i started an own. I tested the new Version in my Car 5er E39 with IKE High and 16:9 MK4 Navigation.
The old Thread is here: http://www.mp3car.com/rr-released-pl...ec-2011-a.html
Please tell me, when you have trouble with the new Version.

Integrated RearCam(Webcam) Feature works only with UVC Devices
add this to plugin ini-file. The Installer don't overwrite an existing ini file.:
add this to your pdc.skin file:
; Enable RearCam Integration, True or False (default False)
for Test you can use this command to enable/disable:
[ RearCam Area ]
There is a new RearCamFull.skin file. If you click the video screen, you can switch between full or normal view.
For connecting my Rearcam on PC i found a usb uvc video grabber on ebay. itemnumber: 310916545175
Also i did some changes on Phone popup skin.
But the Phone Keys don't work at the moment.
Now the Songpos on seeking is only shown in Radiomode Aux.
Some time left, nobody told me about problems with the RearCam(Webcam) version. that's why i delete the older version in this thread.
