libuvc is a cross-platform library for USB video devices, built atop
libusb. It enables fine-grained control over USB video devices exporting the standard USB Video Class (UVC) interface, enabling developers to write drivers for previously unsupported devices, or just access UVC devices in a generic fashion.
Prerequisites: You will need
libusb and CMake installed.
To build, you can just run these shell commands:
git clone https://github.com/ktossell/libuvc cd libuvc mkdir build cd build cmake .. make && sudo make install
and you're set! If you want to change the build configuration, you can edit
CMakeCache.txt in the build directory, or use a CMake GUI to make the desired changes.
The documentation for
libuvc can currently be found at https://int80k.com/libuvc/doc/.
