 0.3 Looks great :-)

I really like what you have done with the 0.3 release :-)
I have two comments though:
1) You need to smile more. (especially when you take marketing pictures ;-)
2 Not sure the startup page is necessary, since it people will want to use the webcam when opening Webkam. However I think it's a good idea to have a tips section.

I like the overall design of thee GUI :-)

Unfortunatly I have a problem with running the app :-(
Just installed the ubuntu package:
pascal@pascal-eee:~$ webkam

make sure that you have gstreamer installed. deb package doesn't look for most of dependencies. it also needs KDE 4.2 (might be development version). If those are just dependencies can you write what packages where missing.

gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
I hope this is the package that you need to install.
Let me know if it worked.

yes. That worked.
Is it not possible to use solid and phonon instead of gstreamer directly?

I don't seem to be able to save pictures. nothing is written to disk and no notification.

I like the new fullscreen mode:-)

Thank you for your feedback. I already updated ubuntu package so it now depends on gstreamer-plugins-good.
You should find images in photo directory - configure it in settings page.
You are right, it should give some kind of feedback to user after photo was taken.

Although it seems odd, perhaps you should add dependency on the Ruby interpreter itself.

At least my Debian testing is able to install all packages your .deb depends upon, without bothering with Ruby...

Also, I would suggest the following in your startup script:

cd `dirname $0`/../lib/webkam/

The way you have implemented it currently is not portable (again, it doesn't work on my Debian)

Having said all that, thanks for the nice utility :)

This is initial version with new interface. In future I'll add some new pages and new sections in start page so it acctually will be useful.

Is there a reason why you're not using the Phonon framework?

Using the Phonon framework will future-proof your app.

Phonon doesn't have video input support yet. I have a lot of feature ideas witch are very easy to implement with gstreamer. Phonon so far is just simple audio/video lib and GStreamer is full-featured(almost) multimedia framework.

 Default image format

 
 by fyzix on: Jan 31 2009
 
Score 50%

Is there a reason that Webkam defaults to png format, instead of jpeg?
Png is great for screenshots and other sorts of computergraphics where image-corruption is easily noticable.
Jpeg on the other hand, is great for real-life pictures and sucky for screenshots etc.
Just took a picture in each format.
The png was 5.0 MB and the Jpeg was 0,16 MB. There is no visible difference.

Just wondering.
Great prog!

Unfortunatly I have a problem with running the app compiled from source, in openSUSE 11.1:

---------------------------------

./settings.rb:81:in `video_path': undefined method `+' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from ./settings_page.rb:37:in `initialize'
from /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/Qt/qtruby4.rb:2539:in `instance_eval'

from ./main_window.rb:18:in `new'
from ./main_window.rb:18:in `initialize'
from ./webkam_app.rb:43:in `new'
from ./webkam_app.rb:43:in `run'
from main.rb:3
/usr/bin/webkam: line 5: 12372 Aborted ruby main.rb
------------------------------------------------

I changed in settings.rb:81 :

default = Qt::DesktopServices::storageLocation(Qt::DesktopServices::MoviesLocation) + '/Webcam/'

with:

default = Qt::DesktopServices::storageLocation(Qt::DesktopServices::MoviesLocation)

and works fine.


Thanks for starting this project, it's excelent!

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
