libCVD is a C++ library for computer image, vision and video processing, designed to be as portable, efficient and high performance as possible. The emphasis is on providing simple and efficient image and video handling and high quality implementations of common low-level image processing function. The library is designed in a loosely-coupled manner, so that parts can be used easily in isolation if the whole library is not required. The video grabbing module provides a simple, uniform interface for videos from a variety of sources (live and recorded) and allows easy access to the raw pixel data. Likewise, the image loading/saving module provides simple, uniform interfaces for loading and saving images from bitmaps to 64 bit per channel RGBA images. The image processing routines can be applied easily to images and video, and accelerated versions exist for platforms supporting SSE.
GNU make and a modern C++ compiler (gcc version >= 3.1)
Doxygen (if you want to build the documentation)
Note, on unix systems there are no required dependencies, but support for advanced features requires external libraries. Features which come as standard on certain platforms (like dMedia on IRIX and QuickTime on MacOS X are not listed).
X11 and OpenGL - required for cheap and cheerful GUI, and for useful GL bindings.
TooN 2.0.0 Beta 2
libjpeg-6b - loading and saving of JPEG images.
libpng - loading and saving of PNG images.
libTIFF - loading of TIFF images
ffmpeg - reading of AVI and MPG files (version >= 0.4.9 required).
Video for Linux 2 - v4l2 support on 2.2 and 2.4 kernels (support is built in to 2.6).
libdc1394 and libraw1394 - firewire camera support.
