1USB Webcam driver
2(c) 2004-2008 François Revol.
3Parts (c) Be,Inc. (ProducerNode sample code).
4
5Current version of my USB Webcam driver. WORK IN PROGRESS!
6Uses the USB Kit (userland API, needs libusb) to publish a
7media node representing the webcam.
8
9It currently only works with my Sonix webcam (3Euro cheapo
10cam, using an SN9C120 chip), but is modular enough to easily 
11expand it, some code is already there to detect Quickcams.
12
13Note however that most webcams only support isochronous 
14transfers, so will NOT work in R5 or even Zeta as isochronous 
15is mostly not working. That's the reason for only supporting
16my Sonix webcam as it is bulk capable.
17As soon as iso support is added to the USB stack and the 
18USB Kit it should be possible to support other webcams quite 
19easily.
20
21For now you should be able to build it under Zeta with the
22makefile provided.
23
24There are 3 kinds of device-specific folders :
25addons/ contains actual usb chip support code for each device.
26sensors/ contains code to handle CMOS sensors, as each model 
27	of a specific brand usually have a different CMOS chip 
28	despite a common usb chip.
29cstransforms/ for colorspace transforms so other device using 
30	the same weird colorspace can reuse the code (not yet 
31	used, sonix has its own code for now). It should be 
32	possible to use Translator-based transforms, making 
33	it easy to support webcams sending JPEG pictures. 
34	Another option is to turn all cstransforms into actual
35	Translators usable by other apps, or also media codecs 
36	but that would be more work for few added value.
37
38Other notes and TODO:
39- finish the bayer cstransform and use that instead of copied 
40(MIT) code in Sonix addon.
41- implement handling picture sizes correctly (currently forced 
42in the ProducerNode and the Sonix code to 320x240)
43- there are currently 2 Deframer classes, the StreamingDeframer 
44although more complex seems to work much better than the 
45BufferingDeframer. Make my mind about them.
46- write isochronous code when USB Kit supports it
47- add quickcam support (I have some code around) (requires iso)
48- add code to support Fuji FinePix to merge the FinePix addon 
49from bebits ? (need to find one to test)
50- design an extensible API to publish possible controls as 
51ParameterWeb or forward ParameterWeb changes right to the 
52device-specific addon and provide default handlers for usual 
53controls ?
