Project Description

I want to control multiple properties of a specific webcam, including exposure, focus, gain, brightness, contrast, and a couple other settings.
The more settings you can help me control programmatically, the better. It does not have to be all of them, but I would like to agree to which ones you will be able to do before awarding the project.

There are likely multiple possible solutions to this problem. I would like to discuss what the best solutions are. Some solutions include device driver programming, hacking device drivers, hacking the software that normally controls the camera, or sniffing the USB packets between the software and the webcam.

The operating system can be windows, linux or both. I would love to be able to control it from both operating systems, but I will settle if I can control it on just one of them.
