Announcement



What is this?
This is a client side port of the Smartcam Client software
It lets you use your N900 to stream video from either video0 or video1 to your windows PC, using it as a webcam.
Its compatible with most programs, skype, msn, etc.

IF YOU INSTALLED THE ORIGINAL C# VERSION, GO THROUGH THE INSTALL.SH AND REVERSE THE COMMANDS, THEN GO TO http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...3&postcount=19 AND REMOVE THE MONO RUNTIMES IF YOU ARENT USING THEM ANYMORE

What do I need?
- You need gstreamer installed
Code:
apt-get install gstreamer-tools
What do I do?
#0 Enable your wifi/usb networking!
#1 Download and install Smartcam for Windows
#2 Download and install Smartcam for Maemo 5
Code:
sudo gainroot
wget http://www.azkay.com/smartcam-m5_0_0_1_armel.deb
dpkg -i smartcam-m5_0_0_1_armel.deb
#3 Look through your applications, you should see Smartcam M5.
#4 Make sure Smartcam is running on Windows, make sure youve allowed it through firewalls.
#5 Open up Smartcam M5, put in the IP of your Windows PC and port for Smartcam; eg; 192.168.2.14:9361
#6 Hit <save> then hit <Start>

That should be it, if all went well you should be seeing live video on the Smartcam Windows side.

ToDo
Client
- Fix things, probably
- New logo/icon
- Back LED enable/disable

Server
- Code my own Smartcam server
- Windows & Linux
- Higher resolution stream
- Audio stream

End
Thanks me for for finally getting this done/released,
Thanks to danielz000 for all his help,
Thanks to deion for his work with Smartcam.
(hope you dont mind if I used the smartcam icon/logo in this, contact me if theres any problems, sourceforges contact is broken)

Be sure to put libmono*, with the asterisk.
If it still doesnt work,

Trying running it from terminal;
mono /etc/smartcam-m5/smartcam-m5.exe

Ill look into it when I wake up (in around 3 hours, blah), sorry.
5:34am, I really shouldve went to bed at 8pm.

Try the apt-get again with extras enabled and testing or also try adding:
Code:
deb http://go-mono.com/maemo diablo user
to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list

then apt-get update and apt-get install libmono*

Is there any chance something like VLC can be used as a client for those of us that "don't do" windows?
