Optional microphone, with noise reduction.
- I already have a semi-professional microphone.
- 720p - (1280 x 720)
- Extreme close-ups.
- Lighting correction.
- I may have to use something third-party, or maybe just velcro.
- H.264 support in-hardware.
- 1080p - (1920 x 1080)
- Software-controlled movement.
- Remote-controlled movement.
- Works in Linux. "Driverless" kernel support.
- I would, of course, need to get a tripod.
Without proper model numbers, it's simply too difficult to figure out what's what and where to get what with witch name. I'm being forced to compare pictures.
- 720p, 30fps, H.264
- Auto-focusing lens, noise-cancelling microphone.
- Explicit Linux support.
- As above, but with a wide angle lens.
- Missing H.264 support. Boo.
Linux notes ∞
Webcams with libre distribution support can be found at https://www.thinkpenguin.com/catalog/accessories-other-products-gnulinux
frame rate is too low ∞
It's your auto exposure slowing things down.
echo "options gspca autoexpo=0">>/etc/modprobe.d/options modprobe -r gspca && modprobe gspca wxcam
But it might be dim now. You may have to screw with other settings. =/
You can also lower the size of the capture area.
Audio sync is off ∞
Previously I had an ffmpeg solution, but it doesn't work any more.
gspca notes ∞
modinfo gspca | grep parm
You can do stuff like this, I think:
echo 4 > /sys/module/gspca/parameters/gamma
/etc/modprobe/d/options can have multiple lines like this:
options gspca gamma=5 autoexpo=0 # options gspca GGreen=200 GBlue=300 GRed=200 # options gspca OffGreen=-2 OffBlue=0 OffRed=-2 options gspca force_rgb=1
