Ostrich – Flash Webcam Motion Capture now Supports Multiple Cam Resolutions

Ostrich, the open source Flash Webcam motion capture interface classes now properly supports multiple camera resolutions.

Nothing like spinning a bug correction as a new feature!  Thanks Antonio for pointing out that the setMode() was missing for the camera.  I often wondered why the resolution was so bad and did not know about the setMode().  When you create your new OstrichCamera object you pass the left, top, right and bottom with defaults of 0,0,640,480.  This gives a desired width and height which is maintained at the best resolution for the aspect ratio.  Before using the setMode() the resolution seemed to be 160×120 and then scaled up.  So this is much better.

Grab the new ZIP file at the left of the site for the update to the OstrichCamera class.
