Software Product Description

QtCAM is an open source and advanced UVC camera for Linux from e-con Systems, which has some special features. The Linux WebCamera software is compatible with all devices that Linux UVC driver supports. It also works with V4L2 compatible devices. The camera's friendly user interface makes it easy to capture and view videos from these devices.

You can connect and simultaneously stream videos from as many as six cameras. The program supports almost 15 different cameras, which include all e-con's and some third party cameras. You can select the connected device from a drop-down list on the left part of the user interface, which is where you access different application settings.

The Linux camera application features more than 10 image control settings, extension settings for selected e-con cameras and color space switching.

You can adjust image quality settings like contrast, brightness and other UVC-supported controls as well as video capture filters like gamma, sharpness, gain and hue. The application makes it easy to adjust these settings using slider bars. You can also change video preview settings depending on the selected resolution and format.

The application lets you view FPS information, including the current FPS and preview resolution on the lower left corner of the application interface. It also displays the current frame rate achieved and number of frames played. The camera supports different types of images and encoder formats. It is also compatible with AVI and MKV containers.

When you capture an image, a pop-up message appears showing you the location where it's saved.

You can download QtCAM installer in a zip archive or the complete source code.

Pros: I went to the website and added the repository and installed directly through apt-get install qtcam, it installed quickly with no errors or dependency errors. The interface is a lot nicer than "cheese" in my opinion, all of the controls are larger and more intuitive. As for performance, it did what it said on the tin without any issues.

Cons: I couldn't find any.

Other Thoughts: A great piece of software for Linux
