Great program. It would be nice can choose the format and resolution of the pictures, and the format of the videos too. I hope we can enjoy a new version.

Are you planing to implement some effects? Like the ones Apple's Photobooth provide?

Version number indicates, that this release is one year old. Doesn't look like an update:(

Thanks for the new release, but it does not compile with GCC 4.5.1 on my Lunar Linux system...

Heres the terminal output:

Komoso Would be most used if there was RPM and DEB packages

Without, it stay reserved for geeks

There are packages for *buntu, openSuSE, Debian available.
Perhaps you should check your distro's repos. Developer is not responsible for building packages.

Hi,

Kamoso is a very good application that was missing for KDE

The latest version is one year old, Is the project still active ?
If yes, what new developments are planned?

We had it kind of stopped for quite some time, mostly because of some library we were using that wouldn't fill our requisites. We're moving on for sure, you can track the development here:

https://projects.kde.org/playground/multimedia/kamoso

It's quite stable now, if you're interested in it, you can try it and tell us what you think on the mailing list: kde-kamoso@kde.org

Why VLC as dependency?

Because we need some video input

I read on your FAQ why you use VLC now instead of AVdevice (like Kopete does).

Of course probably the right thing to do(TM) would be to fix AVdevice, but another idea would be to check out how other non-KDE webcam apps handle this. There's a few: Cheese, camE, SDLcam, spcaview, sonicsnap..

To be honest, VLC is quite a beast as a dependancy for just recording from webcam.

Hey
Well that's probably going to change. Not because VLC is too big, but it's not really fitting our requirements. Improving AVDevice is not an option either because we just don't have the time. We'll see what we find.

Why not simply use gstreamer? :)

Check our development repositories, there's a gstreamer branch. We'll get there.

Indeed it is, probably not for the next version but the one after that.

The next one will bring stability and better integration mostly.

It can be done but it's not one of our priorities so far.

If you are interested on contributing such support you can send an e-mail to kde-kamoso@kde.org
