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.

Getting and Building libuvc

Prerequisites: You will need libusb and CMake installed.

To build, you can just run these shell commands:

git clone
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.

Developing with libuvc

The documentation for libuvc can currently be found at

Happy hacking!
