Hi guys,

I'm an italian student and I need of a cheap solution (software!) to synchronize two usb webcams connected to the same Personal Computer.

I need to produce a low quality stereo streaming video (320x200 or less) but both the frames should be synchronized: both the frames should be acquired at the same time! (not separately!)

All kinds of environments are well accepted: matlab, java, .net, visual basic .........

Thank you so much!!!!!

I've also done a lot of stuff with stereo vision and webcams, and if you can find out how to synchronise two cameras together I'd love to know how to do it.

I can get very good stereo matching, but as the robot moves around I get big disparity errors, because the two images are taken at slightly different times.
