Hi everyone, last week we (my friend linux hacker beer fps master Esteban and I) were playing in my free time with the Raspberry Pi Camera Module, trying to use it via JavaCV which is the Java wrapper for OpenCV. Right now JavaCV distribution don’t provide the Linux-Arm native libraries, so we decided to compile them. After going to all the process of trying to get things working in the Raspberry Pi, we arrive to a dead end. The Raspberry Pi Camera Module doesn’t provide a V4L driver yet, which makes it impossible to use with JavaCV, but having the latest JavaCV compiled for the Raspberry Pi will allow you to use any other USB web cam, and in the future, when the Raspberry Pi Foundation provides the appropriate V4L driver JavaCV will be ready to use it. On this post I will also mention some other alternatives that you have, some workarounds if you really want to use the Raspberry Camera Module in one way or another.
