Guvcview 2.0.3 (Open-Source Photo And Video Taking App) Has Been Released

As you may know, Guvcview is an open source application, developed in GTK+, which enables the users to record videos or take photos via the webcam, set up the video and audio codecs to be used, or set the audio input.

The latest version available is Guvcview 2.0.3, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Add Qt5 interface (–enable-qt5)
  • fix ‘-n’ option (don’t save frame when photo countdown reaches 0)
  • restore exit_on_term option
  • use AC_SYS_LARGEFILE m4 macro for enabling Large File Support (LFS) on 32 bit systems

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu systems is easy. Just add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the guvcview package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pj-assis/testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install guvcview

Optional, to remove guvcview, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove guvcview

The installation instructions should work on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
