hi i cant get it to work :( when i ran the files I just see boxes with blank gray.
and also my webcam’s light isn’t on when i run the app, it seems like it doesn’t detect my cam.
This happened to me too a long time ago, check your config.xml file and try changing the capture device to dsvlcapture instead of the cvcapture driver. This also depends on which camera you are using, but it’s worth a shot…
Replace this code in your filtergraph....
<source value="cam" />
with this code....
<dsvlcapture label="dsvlcapture0" />
And you should see a configuration screen which will ask you for a camera size (e.g. 640x480) and when you select OK you should start to see a live view of your webcam/camera.
When you have configured your optimum settings, then you can automate that process in the config.xml file, but for now, try and see if this activates your camera.
