Use player viewer 3d available from the miarn project.
It supports multiple cameras and everything in opengl (3d acceleration if available).
http://sourceforge.net/projects/miarn/
or more directly here http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=153258

Make sure you have http://www.fltk.org version 2.0 to install.
after installing take a look at the configuration file with the camera support and do "playerviewer3d camera.pv3d.xml" to run.

Bye.

Thank you for your advise. Indeed, the problem was due to GTK.
Actually, I could install playercam. Now, the problem is that I don't
know how to make it work : when I launch playercam with the options
(host, port, etc...), nothing happens (no image, nor windows openning)
and there is no error message ; moreover, the host (the station on
which is connected the camera) displays that a client (the station on
which I launch playercam) is connected : so it seems that playercam
works well. Do you know how I can obtain the display of images ?
Thank you very much for your help.

Benjamin

It would be helpfull if you could provide a little more information.  I
just tested the current CVS version w/ the camera v4l driver and
everything seems to work properly.  I'm using it w/ a Logitech sphere
camera and the following config file:

driver
(
  name "camerav4l"
  provides ["camera:0"]
  alwayson 1
  port "/dev/video0"
  source 0
  size [320 240]
  mode "YUV420P"
)

If you are only using a camera (no blobfinder), the output to the
console should look something like:

bradleyk@feyd :~$ playercam
playerc error   : got NACK from request
playerc error   : failed to get response
blobfinder error: failed to get response
playercam will attempt to continue without a blobfinder
camera: [w 320 h 240 d 24] [230400/230400 bytes]



What kind of camera are you using?  Is everything on localhost?  Have
you tested to make sure you can get data from the camera w/ PlayerPrint?

Best regards,

Brad

Reply-To: playerstage-users@lists.sourceforge.net

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
type :
driver
(
    name "camera1394"
    provides ["camera:0"]
    mode "640x480_rgb"
    framerate 10
    exposure "auto"
    gain "auto"
)
driver
(
    name "cameracompress"
    requires ["camera:0"]
    provides ["camera:1"]
)
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
30.51.140.11 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.

Benjamin

The message format between 1.6.5 and 2.0 are not compatible.  So, you
have to stick with the same version for both.

Sorry, I have done a mistake in my question :
"Do you think that the origin of the problem is the use of playercam
with player 1.6.5 (and not 2.0) ?"
Indeed, I use playercam (compiled by the installation of player 2.0),
but the version of player running on both workstations (herve and
heliaut) is player 1.6.5.

Does playercam use the message format of player 2.0 ?

Thank you for your answer.
(I hope I am understable...)

All of the utilities use the client libraries that they come with.
Thus, playerv if compiled in the 1.6.5 branch, it uses the 1.6.5
libraries (and likewise for 2.0).  So, if you want to use the 2.0 client
libraries, you'll need to use the 2.0 server.

There is a version of playercam that runs on 1.6.5

http://www.iris.ethz.ch/research/marvin/files/

or you can check out Paul Osmialowski's camera viewer:

Hope that helps,
