Sleepless Nights, Software Options and Project Demo

Since Parallels Desktop is proprietary and I only have 13 days left before the trial key expires, I decided to switch back to VMWare. After all, VMWare’s much more stable in terms of hardware support than in VirtualBox.(Although, in Ubuntu, there exists a bug wherein you won’t be able to access the Mac folders) Also, I haven’t tested the iSight Driver on Windows XP using VMWare yet so I might as well try it.

JMF and NyARToolkit and Mac OSx

with 5 comments

After iSight worked on Parallels, I started installing Netbeans, JMF, and Java3D on Windows XP. Then I tried running NyARtoolkit for Java with the libraries I gathered earlier. However, the project always catches the exception ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException 0>=0. It was pointing to the JMFCaptureDevice class. I figured that I should know the List of Capture Devices supported by JMF. So I stumbled upon this website where you could get all the list of supported captured devices by JMF on your laptop. So I compiled it, ran it, and it detected two audio devices.


It was unable to detect the video capture.

I checked the JMFRegistry and looked for detected devices. Fortunately, a video capture device was detected. I rebuilt the project and… voila! NyARtoolkit worked.

We are really confused on what technology to use for game. We are currently looking for open source software that would aid us in our almost-cvmig-like-thesis. Urrrgggh.  Frankly, I am scared because we are so clueless. All the webcam technologies that incorporate games are not open source. I guess our only option is to hardcode everything and go with Java and JMF (Java Media Framework). And we are not sure if that is the best solution or technology to use.

p.s another alternative is to use the touchless SDk, a technolgy developed by microsoft. (my partner discovered it last week)
