SPCA50X USB Camera Linux Driver

SourceForge.net Logo


Things are now "back to normal", which means that the newest code is once again available from http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html. You may wonder why we don't use CVS, but at the moment Michel Xhaard is pretty much the sole maintainer of spca50x, so it works quite well this way. But in time we do plan to put the code back into CVS, and make a real spca50x release.
