SmartCam v1.4 S60v3 SymbianOS9.x Signed -Smartphone Webcam-(Update:27.01.09)

SmartCam - Smart Phone Web Camera - Turns a Symbian Series 60 phone with bluetooth and camera into a handy webcam ready to use with your PC .
Tested on N81.

Change log :

* Higher resolution support (320 x 240) based on Movino ( implementation of libjpeg encoding
* The java version (jSmartCam) is no longer compatible

1. Installation/compilation on PC

Almost all the files needed are in the 'release' folder.
SmartCam for linux is made of the usual phone files, a user mode application (smartcam)
and a driver to emulate a webcam (smartcam.ko). The bad news is that drivers can not be
released in binary form anymore, unless your system happens to run the kernel version
used to compile the driver. smartcam.ko was compiled using kernel version 2.6.24-18-generic
If you are not running this version of the kernel you will have to compile the driver yourself.
Just open a shell in the src/driver path and type:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.24-18-generic/build M=`pwd` modules
In the above command replace /lib/modules/2.6.24-18-generic/build to the path corresponding to
your system. After successfully compiling the driver you should have the file smartcam.ko in the
src/driver folder.
If you want to compile the application as well go to src/app and type:
gcc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0 gthread-2.0` -lbluetooth smartcam.c -o smartcam

2. Installation on phone

Just transfer any of the files SmartCamS603rdEd.SIS, SmartCamS602ndEd.SIS that
match your phone on your mobile and follow the installation instructions.

3. Running

Before running smartcam, the driver must be loaded in the kernel; if not the PC application will
complain at start time and exit. To load the driver, open a shell as root in src/driver path and type:
/sbin/modprobe videodev
/sbin/insmod smartcam.ko
After this start the application on the PC, start the phone application and connect it to your PC.
You should now see video images on the PC application window.

4. 3rd party applications

SmartCam was tested on Ubuntu 8.04, kernel version 2.6.24-18-generic, bluez-utils 3.30-3.
Note: some earlier bluez-utils versions don't work with SmartCam.
SmartCam works with Kopete, Ekiga, aMsn and gstreamer (launch gstreamer-properties, go to the video
tab, Default Input, and press Test to see if it is supported by gstreamer). Unfortunately it doesn't
work with skype, nor with gstfakevideo for skype.
