Using microphone and webcam in GP?

Post by MSandro » Aug 13th, '18, 11:34

Hi, It would be very nice if we are able to use the camera (webcam) an microphone of the computer with GP. So we could took photos and record sounds.

Is it possible through serial ports and getting raw data?

Hmm, I could try that.
But I think it would be better to implement some drivers or librarys to the vm.

Yeah, isn't that what modules are for? (although I really don't know the purpose of modules...)

GP supports getting data from the microphone using the "sound input" block in the Sound category.

I agree, camera support would be nice to have as well, but its a fair bit of work to support that on all platforms.

Nice to know. Yes camera support would be realy nice but might be realy difficult to implement because of the driver handling on several platforms.
