Description Ortwin Glueck 2008-06-08 15:03:24 UTC
The attached patch adds UYVY format support for the luvcview application. This support is necessary for the iSight webcam found in MacBooks. The linux-uvc driver already supports this webcam. This patch has been ported from the original patch of Debian.

I would love to push this upstream, but I am not quite sure what is the upstream authority that maintains this application. It is not in the linux-uvc SVN. But there is something on a Logitech site:

Updated patch fixes the pixel format of the GUI as well.

Hello, and sorry for the late response. As far as I know, the upstream for luvcview is Michel Xhaard. Contact information is available here:

Thanks, Aggelos. I have contacted Michel and he agreed to integrate the patch. But looking at his website I honestly find it extremely hard to track a new release.

You can find the releases here:

It looks like there isn't a new one yet.

May take him some time. His answer was: "Ok will done soon" :)
