How can I acquire webcam snapshots from a ps3 eye?
9 views (last 30 days)
I got the driver software from macam(<http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/>) and followed their directions to install the macam.component from the .dmg file into the /Library/Quicktime folder like they recommended.
Then I tried installing both the USB Webcams and the OS Generic Video Interface in hope of have access to the webcam. At this point when I call
camList = webcamlist
I'm only returned with the string
'Facetime HD Camera (Built-in)'
instead of with another external camera option.
Likewise this command returns
MATLABVersion: '8.4 (R2014b)'
ToolboxName: 'Image Acquisition Toolbox'
ToolboxVersion: '4.8 (R2014b)'
instead of multiple cameras to choose as well. Does anyone know how to import the driver software to MATLAB? Or likewise some c-code I could enter that would allow me to use the snapshot() function in MATLAB? Thanks so much!

I have it working on 64 bit windows 10 with driver: https://github.com/jkevin/PS3EyeDirectShow
And the image acquisition toolbox with the Acquisition Using Any Hardware set of functions. That is, use winvideo(); others, like preview() don't work).
vid = videoinput('winvideo',2)
[img, ts] = getsnapshot(vid);
