Option to choose camera

Postby BWebster » Sat Apr 24, 2010 4:01 pm

Please add a "Choose Camera" option, like in Photo Booth, to your programs. That way, different user webcams could be easily used with your programs, and the best one chosen. I am particularly interested in better barcode scanning. This could make it much easier for users to add new items to your pedias. Programming the option should be relatively easy. Making the scanning algorithm more adaptive might be more "fun". In my case, my old FireWire iSight works much better than the built-in iSight on my new iMac, but using it requires disabling USB camera(s) with a script, then re-enabling after scanning. Neither a quick nor easy process. (Previous suggestions of making the internal webcam busy with other applications did not work in my tests.)

Connor has taken this on board and has included it in the next release.

Please see this thread "Using another webcam ?"

In future please do a Topic search it saves on doubling up with questions.
