In my previous article, I shared how to use PyQt and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader to create a simple Windows-styled GUI app to read barcodes from image files. Now I am going to add a little bit more code to scan barcodes from the webcam video stream.
Dynamsoft Android Camera SDK is coming soon. In this article, let’s preview the SDK and learn how to write an Android document scanning app with a few lines of Kotlin code.
For the past week, I was looking for a live streaming solution to broadcast video from a USB webcam that connects to Raspberry Pi. This post will help you set up a live streaming server on Raspberry Pi step by step.
If you have a USB camera, how can you build a simple C# camera application on Windows 10? There are three options: WIA (Windows Imaging Acquisition), DirectShow and MediaCapture. After trying some sample code that downloaded from CodeProject and GitHub, I got the conclusion: 1. WIA is not good because it does not support my webcam. 2. DirectShow can work well, but there is no C# API provided by Microsoft. You need to create a wrapper for C++ API. 3. MediaCapture class that designed for UWP apps provides C# APIs which provide low-level control over the capture pipeline and enable advanced capture scenarios. In this article, I want to share how to create a simple C# webcam app in which I can handle every preview frame myself.
On mobile platforms, HTML5 is not only supported by web browsers, such as Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, but also web view UI component that used for building native apps. The benefit is apparent that any developer who is familiar with web programming could easily create excellent mobile apps for Android and iOS. Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK provides .NET APIs for Windows. You can implement a barcode reading module on server-side (IIS), and detect barcode images that captured from any mobile devices using HTML5. The article will illustrate how to make a mobile barcode reader based on B/S (Browser/Server) architecture.
When you are going to purchase a new smartphone like iPhone 6 or Galaxy S5, don’t just throw your old devices away. Via socket connection, we can build a remote monitoring system with obsolete mobile devices instead of purchasing expensive Webcams or wireless cameras. In this article, I’d like to share how to connect an Android camera app to a remote server by socket, as well as how to display the camera preview frames of my mobile device on the server Window.
