There is nothing existing to allow camera1394 to change the parameters on the fly. I would recommend looking into device properties, which allow you to set/get miscellaneous parameters from a device that don't conform to any interface. However I think it is a good idea to eventually have the camera interface support such things.

Hi all,

I use the camera1394 driver to get images. I need to modify online (during
player execution) some parameters of the cam, such as the format, the
framerate, the gain... and I've found nothing to help me with that on
interfaces and proxies.

Do you now a way to modify camera parameters ?

If the only solution is to modify the camera interface and proxy, and the
camera1394 driver, I can try to do it from the SVN version. However, as it
will be my first contribution in a huge shared dev project, do you have some
advices or development guide ?
