We're trying to make the ARToolkit work with our Sony DCR-PC100E Digital
Video Camera connected through firewire but all we get is a black
We are running the DirectShow without VRML version on Windows but have
also tryed the one with VRML - same result.
After starting the program the Property Sheet Window pops up fine and
after clicking ok a new window pops up but it is empty and will not
answer any keys or mouse events.
We have done some debugging and have found that the program hangs at
in the ARFrameGrabber::GrabFrame method - untill then everything seems
to go fine.
If we change the INFINITE to - say - 1000 we gets a running, but pretty
messed up picture that seems to correspond to what we are shooting with
the camera (colors change and so), and we have also tried some of the
test-programs distributed with DirectShow which worked perfectly.
We have also tried with a standard USB WebCam on the same computer and
that works fine.
Anyone who have a suggestion for what goes wrong and how to solve it?
