We wrote a DirectShow filter based on Vivek’s VCam that outputs a
640x480 video feed. Since CCV natively supports DirectShow-capable
video cameras and filters, no modifications to CCV were necessary, and
we were able to configure CCV to pretty accurately detect the hands as
blobs. With a little fine tuning, it might be possible to get
fingertip level blob tracking (we haven’t even tried to go there yet).
