View Full Version : [all variants] still picture from a webcam

August 30th, 2010, 03:19 AM
Looking at the V4L2 documentation and testing some of the features it doesn't look like it is possible to grab a still image from a webcam. I am using a Microsoft Lifecam VX3000 and it has a maximum resolution of 1280x960. It looks like all of the V4L2 deal with the capture/streaming pictures, which only go up to 640 x 480.

Is there any way to write an application that can grab the full resolution from the camera?
