I’ve recently started to do some work on designing an MT table using Ubuntu 10.04. I’m also seeing this issue with my own setup..I think we maybe either missing a Codec for MP4 format which is causing this problem or CCV is having issues replaying MP4 format on Ubuntu...won’t really be able to verify until I look at this further.
I recently became a part of this Forum and people here are great! and willing to lend a helping hand.
I’m still in the experimental phases..reading threads about how I should get started...I’ve also been reading the Multi-Touch Technologies_v1.01 pdf which is located in the wiki....so I can gain a better understanding of the tech and how I should proceed with my setup so I highly recommend it.
I started experimenting with getting a miniMT setup...i was able to make small progress on the Ubuntu side...however I’ve run into 1 road block due the camera I’m using. The camera I’m using is an Xbox Vision Camera...however I’m unable to get CCV to actually work with this camera...I’m not sure why..I received some assistance from another member (Aras) who helped me with modifying my config.xml file which solved the issue of CCV crashing when initially launch......search for past postings. Aras recommended that I modify config.xml file just like vahid recommended..which helped solve the crashing issue...however now I’ve run into another issue in which CCV will not use my camera..but other applications such Cheese Webcam Booth application works fine.
I am planning on buying a modified PS3 camera from PeauProductions...I was doing the research yesterday...which I think I will be going with a PS3 camera w/ M12 mount and 850nm filter. Don’t know if should right away buy the M12 lens or wait since its my first MT table.
So if PeauProductions or anyone else reads this...whats your input on getting an M12 lens right away. I know its suppose to work on improving clarity with fiducials and blob detection but not sure if I want this now or make it an upgrade option down the road....sorry dont mean to hijack your post...so back to what I was saying…
Let me know how your progress goes....would be interested in knowing how it goes specially on the Ubuntu side. I post back if I make some progress.
