At the moment, only native JPEG is supported by the driver, so it's about 2 fps.

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

I tried to get it to work by using this driver in addition to SimpleCV and OpenCV, both seem to work as far as communicating with the camera, because the camera light does turn on. But every time my program loads it freezes my pi. Does anyone have any solutions I might be able to try? Upgrade UV4L ...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

I'm trying to get a video feed in, then put graphic overlays on top of the video stream. Have you had a look at fswebcam ? http://www.firestorm.cx/fswebcam/ I think it can overlay PNG images while grabbing. The resulting images can be piped into mencoder to encode a video. To give you an idea, see:...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

If anyone has some information on how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. To enable the streaming I/O, set the LD_PRELOAD environment variable as in the following example: $ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/uv4l/uv4lext/armv6l/libuv4lext.so python ./pyprog.py The "pygame.camera" python module does not ...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

John, again, that V4L2 driver is a 100% user space program ; it does not strictly depend on the kernel in any way! In other words, as long as the mmal ABI is stable (isn't it?), unlike a real kernel driver, that driver does not have to be rebuilt each time the kernel or the firmware internals change...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

is that just V4L in general, or this Raspbian userspace code in particular? I am not sure what you mean by that question, but UV4L consists of a group of Video4Linux2-compliant user space drivers ported to Raspbian. One of those drivers is for the Rpi CSI Camera Board. From the documentation availa...
