    Unhappy Starting on Windows


    I have been a Linux user for many years, and right now, the company that I do work for is using the DMK21AU04 camera, and as you all probably know, there is no Linux drivers for it, therefore I am now using Windows to build the application we need.

    The thing is, I have never used the Visual C++ for it (have always used the gcc), and I am not sure where to start here, I could not find any examples to compile (and how should I proceed to compile the examples? I am forced to use the Visual Studio, or can I just use the MS C++ Compiler - and is it free?)

    Anyway, I would really appreciate if someone could point me out to the right direction with some examples, or anything.

    Any tip would help me a lot!

    Thank you.

    There is no driver is partly wrong. Have a look at and follow the instructions. Then you can use standard v4l2 for the camera.

    You can proceed with the famous v4ldevice.cpp and v4ldevice.h from the internet, which will work fine, or you can also use GStreamer. For this you may look at
