new version out
since people actually seemed to like this and i won’t have time to fix a gui for the new version for some time i’ll publish it without gui.
the new beta fixes some bugs (especially the white balance one) and adds some feats.. no changelog available but here’s what you can get/set if your camera supports it: auto-focus, absolute focus, relative focus, auto-exposure, absolute exposure, absolute iris, relative iris, auto-white balance temperature, absolute white balance temperature, brightness, contrast, gain, saturation and sharpness.
note that the argument order has changed since the last version, think “get/set <value> of <function> on <cam>”. also included the source this time!
the binary included is “universal” (i386/x86_64) and have been tested on both os x 10.6 and 10.7 (thanks to Arvid). the source has also been compiled on freebsd9. it does not require python as that was only the gui. it does however require libusb.
known bugs (thank you Matthew and F-red for the reports)
- interactive session can’t take negative values
- auto-exposure value description in wrong order
- show configuration segfaults
update thanks to Klaus’ report it seems possible to fix the problem with programs resetting settings made by uvc-ctrl. if you have this trouble: try starting the program that resets your settings, from within it switch to your iSight, update the settings you want with uvc-ctrl on your other cam and then switch back. your settings should now still be in place.
