video loopback [Jan. 2nd, 2002|08:34 pm]

Yesterday I messed around with video loopback stuff again. Things weren't working and I gave up, somewhat dejected. Last night in bed I realized the bug wasn't mine, but the vloopback module's. In fact, it has several bugs: rmmod it and it'll hang the system. :-)

But I have random color static now! Now I just have to connect the two pieces: I already have the image acquistion from the network camera, and now I can feed the video loop input. I just need to get raw pixels from the JPEG now... I suppose ImageMagick can convert to some RAW format for me. Oh, and my JPEG acquire program is in Perl, so I suppose I either need to make the C program which feeds the pipe read from the Perl program, or figure out how to do ioctls with Perl, which is probably easy, but I haven't looked into it and I'm just thinking out loud now.

Hungry again. Damn cruise.

it's interesting that it stemmed from a post of mine. a controversial one at that. :-P

but anyway, brad isnt someone you should worship.. he's just a normal guy with talent and drive to implement. worship, albeit flattering, is probably unnecessary.

I realize you have this iresistable urge to "claim your credit"...however I did not point a finger at you since people were screaming at you and calling oyu names.
