Camera1394 has additional “port” and “node” options you should look at (  I have a feeling that the BumbleBee is showing up as two different cameras on the firewire bus.  Camera1394 will default to the first camera it finds, even if the camera is already in use.  I think the utility “plugreport” will show you what is connected to the Firewire bus, and it should be available from your distro’s repositories (in Fedora, it’s in the libiec61883-utils package).

Subject: [Playerstage-users] bumblebee stereo camera



I am trying to use the PointGrey Bumblebee stereo camera with Player version 3.0.1
I can get the camera image (the right) with the following configuration file
  name "camera1394"
  provides [ "camera:0" ]
  framerate 15
  mode "640x480_mono"
  bayer "RGGB"
  method "DownSample"
and it looks fine, the refresh and the color are fine.
I try to get the other camera image (the left) copying another similar driver section
providing "camera:1" interface but it did not work.
How it should be the configuration file to get the the left and right images in two separate intefaces ?
I am using
- kernel version 2.6.26-2-686
- libdc1394-22
- libraw1394-11

I will be appreciated if someone could help me
thanks in advance
