Auto-bright, Frame Rate, and success!
Well, I'm not sure what happened to the parallel port on this box
after installing the new card, but all seems to be back to normal
now. I grabbed the 1.01 xfqcam stuff, edited out the non-
essential usleep()'s, and everything is wonderful. No more
I've been following the thread concerning the auto-brightness and
was playing with it a bit tonight. Not only does it seem to make
it a bit easier to adjust the qcam, but it results in a 60%
speedup here. 80x60@6bits gives me a rate of about 32fps. With
the brightness set at 255, the framerate jumps to 51! WOW!!!
This is on a AMD DX4/120, 16M Ram, Bi-directional EPP port and
8bit depth on X w/ #9 Motion 771 card.
All I can say is "WOW!" It seems that Connectix only expects
around 15fps on a Pentium 90 (judging from the booklet in the
box). Just one more reason why Linux is the Choice of the Gods!
