webcam-capture-driver-vlcj

This is capture driver which uses vlcj library from Caprica Software Limited to gain access to the camera device.

NOTE! On Windows one needs to provide list of webcam devices manually because vlclib does not implement video devices discovery on this platform (please see this example to find out how this should be done).

The vlcj library is distributed according to the terms of the GPL license.
