I’d suggest to take a look at this post https://communities.intel.com/message/247757#247757 in there is one way to do this.
Right. The main thing here is to get a webcam driver for your webcam and unfortunately right now the official image doesn't include any, thus that build with kernel reconfig in the thread referenced.
That one specifically outlines options for uvcvideo, make sure your webcam is supported by that driver, or adjust accordingly (feel free to ask if you get stuck).
After that you can install the latest OpenCV from my repo and go ahead with the development.
I have tried two cameras 1) Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 2) Microsoft Lifecam HD-3000 . But for both cameras "lsmod" command result is as following.
Module Size Used by videobuf2_vmalloc 13003 0 videobuf2_memops 13001 1 videobuf2_vmalloc videobuf2_core 37707 0 usb_f_acm 14335 1 u_serial 18582 6 usb_f_acm g_multi 70813 0 libcomposite 39245 2 usb_f_acm,g_multi bcm_bt_lpm 13676 0 bcm4334x 578947 0
but information should be appear like below.. Right? (from link - Motion detecting video streaming doorbell)
The information below should appear:
Module Size Used by
uvcvideo 71516 0 ← this is the module
videobuf2_vmalloc 13003 1 uvcvideo videobuf2_memops 13001 1 videobuf2_vmalloc
videobuf2_core 37707 1 uvcvideo
usb_f_acm 14335 1
u_serial 18582 6 usb_f_acm
g_multi 70813 0
libcomposite 39245 2 usb_f_acm,g_multi
bcm_bt_lpm 13676 0
bcm4334x 578947 0
So now should I have to change another camera or any other way is possible?
I want to use these HD cameras as I want to do high resolution image processing for better implementation. Thanks in advance.
Hi Ethan, see my reply in the UVC Driver Support thread, I think you just need to load the driver manually.
I personally used HD-3000 with Edison and it works just fine (provided the driver is loaded).
