Thanks for summarizing this. One warning to OpenCV users, at least in OpenCV 2.4.9, the camera capture logic for Linux doesn't seem to be implemented properly. I haven't looked at the code, but based on the behavior, it looks like it uses only one buffer which (at least in my case) resulted in dropped frames. If you find that you're only able to achieve half the frame rate you're expecting, you may need to investigate writing your own frame capture logic using v4l2.
I am trying to install opencv on ubilinux using the command
apt-get install opencv-dev
and it says can not locate package opencv-dev
But when I try to install it using
apte-get install libopencv-dev
the installation starts.
What's the difference I searched for opencv-dev pacakge on package.ubuntu.com but couldn't find it but libopencv-dev was there.
Please clear my doubt.
Thanks in advance.
