It's pretty simple, really
Start off here... I posted code to capture images from a Web cam using JMF
( Download latest JMF 2.1.1e ( Windows/Linux performance version, and carefully read the install guide )
That'll get you the web cam capture bit.
Comparing photos ?
Here's another thread I replied to on that subject...
all the answers are out there if you search !
That pretty cool Owen. I'm very impressed!
As far as comparing pictures/images, you could do a pixel by pixel comparison, but it's not going to do very well.
Suppose, for example, that picture 2 is one pixel off to the left or right. The two pictures are the same, but doing a pixel by pixel comparison might rank them as very different.
I would guess You need some sort of AI that does pattern matching
Thanks very much all
Not that it affected my reply, but going by the e-mail address in your profile, I assume you're in Ireland too?
Ps. if you're using the web cam capture code I posted, there's a bug when switching video resolution.
You have to request the visual component again, remove the old one, and add it back to the container.
( cos it may have been invalidated during the video resolution / format switch. )
Yeah i was trying to fix that. But onby minor. The code is very helpfull and gives a much clearer indication of what i want to do and new ideas.
Im in Dublin, trying to work hard on this project. Coming together now, next part is the image comparision, which i saw your thread already. Havnt got it working properly yet.
As you probably already know, Sun are coming to Dublin on the 20th of Feb for a developers conference. Its free, all you have to do is register online. Limited places and its in the Davenport Hotel.
