    It looks like I'm done with the OBD-II stuff if anyone's interested in playing with it.

    Curiosity quick question, are you able to implement a screen flip/image flipping/rotation option?

    I'm looking at sticking a new smaller camera to the roof upside down. The software that comes with this webcam *can* do it but when you reboot it forgets the setting...

    On an related note I purchased two new cameras to try out two instances of Minicam and it did work in the end, but with an issue. Using anything other than uncompressed (ie ffdshow) it doesn't record (just stops straight away even with one camera). Now it only does this when its native 640x480 res is used, if I use its silly little program that comes with it that downsamples it to 320xsomething res it works (however at a slower framerate due to this silly program it comes with). Any idea what would be holding it back from recording the native 640x480? Its a HP Deluxe Webcam (KQ246AA) for those playing at home.

    Yes!

    Do you support an AGV4000 in CAN mode (500kbit/s)?

    Check the GPS options. You'll find flip and mirror.

    MiniCam should have the 320x240 option. 640x480 requires 4x the throughput (USB, HD, CPU, video card). While you're recording look at the performance tab in task manager. If it's using over 50% for 1 camera, it will use over 100% for 2. Uncompressed will use the least CPU cycles but eat space on your hard disk. Try different options such as dropping the quality in ffdshow, lowering frame rate, disabling preview while recording until your PC can handle it.

    No idea. I just use the ELM327 which auto-detects on my car. I was thinking of adding custom init commands if that's needed.

    Cheers, I also forgot to add that the recording at 640x480 doesn't work even running one camera, I haven't actually tried recording two yet.

    Oh and thanks for the flip/mirror, I must have missed it!

    Another question, I've just tried the flip/mirror and it worked great

    However I'm guessing the GPS overlay is the same for both instances of Minicam, hence it flips both cameras

    Any chance of making them separate? Issue I have is the rear camera is going to be upside down under the roof and the front needs to be right-way-up due to it being bigger...

    That might take some time. Have you checked the camera's options? It's the "Config" button next to the camera selection. A lot of cams have that option.

    Yep look I don't think it will be an issue actually for me, I've just figured out a way to mount my older front webcam upside down as well as the rear newer webcam upside down so I'll just use the GPS flip option

    Good. I haven't found a way to associate the instance of the filter with the camera yet.
