Anyone know what is the closest to the following? I am looking for
video capture functionality.
I am developing a multi platform application written in wxPython. The
feature I need to add is video conferencing and streaming.
Specifically, I need to create a window class that can receive video
from our server or from a peer. I also need video capture and the
ability to output a video stream to one or more peers.
I think maybe Kamelia could do the pipelining, but they don't seem to
have much video capture capability built in. Unless Twisted is
In any case, I need video capture, which I probably can wrap into Kamelia.
The only interesting hits I have found so far are:
PXC-200 Frame Grabber Module - http://www.mems-exchange.org/software/pxc200/
libfg -- Frame Grabber library for Linux - http://antonym.org/libfg
These are all either camera hardware specific or platform specific or
both. Isn't there an open source multi-platform library for this kind
If such a thing exists in C++, perhaps it could be swigificated.
BTW, there is probably a short term contract available for anyone with
the ability to develop this functionality, and I might be able to
arrange for the resulting module to be open source (subject to
approval). Contact me off line if you are interested in that.
