Will be through OpenCV as soon as cvcam driver will be able to build
with Visual C++ Express Edition. You can try to do this on your own if
you have some programming skills. This needs:
- OpenCV for Windows (it supports cameras properly, I was able to compile
and run example code: http://vlab.pjwstk.edu.pl/~vlabdemo/io/cam/cvgrab.c)
- pkgconfig for Windows as CMake needs this to find OpenCV. You should
also create C:\pkgconfig\opencv.pc file for your own since OpenCV for
Windows does not provide this file (you can take one from unix version of
OpenCV for a template and make necessary changes, keep in mind that
pkgconfig needs unix slashes, i.e. c:/progra~1/opencv). The
PKG_CONFIG_PATH shell variable should be set to C:\pkgconfig
Having this I was able to tell CMake that OpenCV is installed and
this caused cvcam driver to be compiled. Unfortunately, final Player
server binary did not built (linking problems?), I don't know why, I'm not
familiar with Windows, I'm using different Unixes for my everyday jobs.
