Hello,

I'm interested to grab images from logitech webcam. They are well supported under linux also using pwc module. I know that it is possible to get frames using video4linux, but it looks like it is not working with openml. mlquery say:
[v4l mlmodule] unable to use 24-bit mode, skipping device.


Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, the v4l module is a sample only, and as such has rather limited functionality. In this case, it seems that it is hard-coded for a particular mode of operation that is not supported on the WebCam.

The good news is that the SDK comes with the source code for the module, so you can make improvements and modifications... and make it work with your particular hardware.
