Robert Nagy (robert@) has just enabled uvideo(4) in i386 and amd64 GENERIC kernels. Robert and Marcus Glocker (mglocker@) have spent much of their time this hackathon adding support for a wide range of USB webcams.
Update (June 13 2008, 12:15:00 MDT): Marcus Glocker wants to point out that we are only interested in reports that include cameras that are UVC compatible. That means mostly newer cameras. Please see an explanation here and the details in the UVC spec.
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: email@example.com 2008/06/12 13:45:05 Modified files: sys/arch/amd64/conf: GENERIC Log message: theo says: enable, enable, enable uvideo(4) Some of the cams are fairly working now and we want to see more of them in dmesgs.
Please plugin your USB webcam, boot -current with uvideo enabled, and send in your dmesgs to mglocker@ and robert@.
