In fact, I am using a camera ieee1394, connected to a firstworkstation
called "heliaut". I run on it player-1.6.5 with a config file of this
On an other workstation called "herve" I have installed player-2.0 in
order to have playercam, but the version of player active is 1.6.5
(because player-2.0 didn't seem to work well). So in this workstation
I run playercam : >playercam -h heliaut
The link between heliaut and herve is done by Wifi.
On "heliaut", player display that client "herve" is connected with
port 6665 (the message is : ** Player [port 6665] client accepted from
22.214.171.124 on socket 6 **) ; so heverything seems OK. However, on
"herve", nothing happens (no message, nothing...)
I know that there is no problem to acquire signal from camera, and no
problem with Wifi link : indeed, I can save images acquired by the
camera connected to "heliaut" in folder on "herve", by running a
little program called "test_camera1394".
So, I think that the problem is only due to playercam. Do you think
that the origin of the problem is the use of playercam with player-2.0
What should be the answer of "herve" to the command >playercam -h
heliaut ? A display of what the camera sees ? Should there be a window
opening with the film automatically ?
Thank you again for your help.
