Adding VideoCapture API

asked 2019-08-15 19:22:16 -0500

Is there any documentation on how to go about adding a new API (new camera type) to VideoCapture?

what exactly are you trying to do ? can you explain "a new camera type" ? why would it need adding a new api ?

Trying to interface to PixeLink cameras. They work with CAP_DSHOW but I would like to tweak a few settings using their API, settings that CAP_DSHOW doesn't support. I've implemented a Windows DLL (C++) some 13 years to interface their cameras to National Instrument's Vision but we're thinking about replacing all that code with python/opencv
