Using SimpleCV for webcam

Thu Nov 08, 2012 10:30 pm

I'm trying to get this example to work:http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~db434/raspi/image_processing/

I ended up using the provided Debian image so I have all the libraries and my webcam is on the list of working usb devices.

Compiling the example in x gives nothing. In a shell it says:

Opening the device
Initializing device
Setting device format
Initializing memory mapped i/o
Segmentation fault

and then it comes back to the prompt.

It looks like it finds the camera, but there's so little code for the example that I don't see where this 'segmentation fault' could be coming from.

Any ideas?

There is a guide available as part of the docs here:
