Slurchin is a Web interface to a Quickcam for Notebooks Deluxe connected to a NSLU2 running Linux. (It might work for other webcams, hardware, and OSes, but it hasn't been tested.) The application allows the user to take pictures and see them through the Web. It also allows the user to check if the necessary drivers to make the camera work are installed and loaded. It requires w3camd to be installed in the device.
libvcvideo is targeted as a super-simple cross platform video device library. It's starting with the most basic features and building up, all while keeping a simple API and strong documentation for beginners. Currently only select devices are supported, but as more hardware becomes available that will change. Right now it only has limited compatibility with Linux Webcam devices that use the original V4L specifications and output RGB24 data. This is actually a very large set of devices, as that is the generic description for most spca5xx and gspca devices. Though incomplete, if you have the right device it is very simple. Counting variable declaration, you only need four lines of library code to get a frame from a camera.
unweave opens each of a list of image files, removes the artifacts generated by weave interlacing, and overwrites the original file (unless told otherwise). The artifacts are removed by simply removing either the odd or the even lines of the image, and interpolating them from the remaining lines.
