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 https://github.com/libuvc/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.

There is also

BUILD_EXAMPLE
and
BUILD_TEST
options to enable the compilation of
example
and
uvc_test
programs. To use them, replace the
cmake ..
command above with
cmake .. -DBUILD_TEST=ON -DBUILD_EXAMPLE=ON
. Then you can start them with
./example
and
./uvc_test
respectively. Note that you need OpenCV to build the later (for displaying image).

libuvc
