OpenCV Python and a webcam

OpenCV Python and a webcam

I'm working with OpenCV on a BeagleBoard with Ubuntu and OpenCV 1.1 interfaced via Python. I'm trying to set something up to capture a feed from a UVC compatible webcam (Logitech C250). I have tested the webcam with luvcview, and it works, but only if I set the input format to YUV. If I run it in 'normal' mode I am getting back JPEG frames and something - somewhere is not happy!

I'm trying to connect with the webcam in OpenCV as I want to get the image back from the webcam and run some analysis on it. As I have a limited device this seems to be the most efficient way of doing it - however I need to instruct the capturing system to capture in YUV and not JPEG. Is there a way of doing this (for example luvcview allow me to enter luvcview -f YUVY)?

How can I setup my Netbeans IDE for making Java ME applications?


Buffering of stream data
I've cracked this partly. PHP Segmentation fault when started from crond If you compile OpenCV with the flag WITH_JPEG=OFF then the camera will not try to use MJPEG.. waiting for 2 different events in a single thread
