I've got a simple kernel driver that detects my WebCam Go, but nothing more exciting than that. I discovered that Creative have not added the optional EEPROM that makes the camera look like they made it. I think all they've done is to license the chip, slap on a decent motion-sensor and lens, plus the maximum amount of memory. Neat.
With actual detection working, and seemingly no leaks (bah!), I can start figuring out the following:
- How to configure the camera (luminance and other fun things) and set up how much bandwidth to grab (full 12Mb/s might be possible)
- How to read a videostream, and pushing it to the V4L interface
- Choosing between JPEG or uncompressed images
- Reading the stored pictures
Getting the picture looking good might be another problem - heaps of settings to tweak.
