I would like an application for Linux Unubtu 11.04 that can capture videos from multiple playstation eye usb cameras simultaneously. The number of cameras will be variable, up to 8. This application may be based on the open source guvcview. This application has all the desired features, except it can capture only one camera. When multiple instances are used, the video is corrupt.
I require some gui to assign output paths for each video. The output format should be .avi MJPEG or YUY2 un compressed YUV. The resolution should be 640x480 at 60fps.
In addition to saving a video per feed, I would also like another file which is an exact time that each frame is saved. This file will help synchronize the data from all cameras.
There should be some preview of each video feed.
I require that you release the source to me on completion of the project.
I require that the application can capture video for up to an hour without crashing.
I have tried opencv and guvcviewer. OpenCV can capture multiple cameras, but only at 320x640. GuvcViewer can only capture one camera. I have tried updating to the latest linux 4vl2 drivers and I am not having any luck. This might be a simple task for the right person. If you are not familiar with 4vl you should probably not bid on this job.
I require that we focus on the playstation eye camera. This is a low cost device. I have four of these. You should also purchase 4 of these. They are $40 USD. Include the price in your bid and I will pay for them.
Please let me know if I can provide more details.
