fswebcam - Small and simple webcam software for *nix. Created by Philip Heron <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.sanslogic.co.uk/fswebcam/ This is the program used to generate images for a webcam. It captures a number of frames from any V4L or V4L2 compatible device, averages them to reduce noise and draws the details on it using the GD Graphics Library which also handles compressing the image to PNG, JPEG or WEBP. INSTALLING Run the following commands in the source folder to build and install fswebcam: ./configure --prefix=/usr make make install It's only requirements are that the GD library be installed with JPEG, PNG and FreeType support.
