I’m not quite done with the new version of uvc-ctrl yet but i though i’ll give anyone that’s still interested an update..
the new version is a complete rewrite (not needing libusb and therefore distributed under the dm9 license), two part project. first there’s the uvcc-lib, a library that implements some of the stuff i’ve been missing in QTKit (enumeration of resolutions and fps´, direct access to vendor and device id etc), a few helper functions to tie it up with QTKit (getting a uvccCam struct that can be used to send uvc requests from a [QTCaptureDevice uniqueID] and so on) and of course a uvccSendRequest function. Then there’s the application which will be a status bar (or “menu bar”, dunno the apple lingo here) app capable of setting all the settings on any connected uvc compliant cam.
i thought i’d have this done by now but a work-project turned out occupy most of my summer. now i’m back, just moved into a new apartment and is trying to settle in and study for an exam i screwed up before leaving for the summer break.
next time i post it’ll be the new uvc-ctrl comming out.
update: still some kinks to work out.. but here’s a sneek preview
