hi,

I tried to scan a barcode on a cisco phone but it was not recognized. I don't know what type of barcode it is. Would someone be able to identify the barcode type and let me know if it is supported by zbar? Is it one that would be added in the future?

    I scanned using iPhone 4. I tried several other app but none would recognize the barcode. I like zbar for the export to csv feature.

    The image is pretty bad. Can you send a better picture?

    sorry about the bad image. I deleted it and added two more samples. If they still are clear enough I will have to take a camera to work on Monday.

    Hello, after getting the images onto my PC I was able to enlarge them. They scanned as code 128. It seems that the original barcodes are too small to be recognized. Any suggestions on scanning small barcodes?

    In the latest version of the app, try rotating the device to landscape and zooming in (un-pinch).

    If this does not work, then it's likely the iPhone camera simply is not good enough to read this barcode. Unfortunately, this is likely for very small barcodes...
