    Seemingly simple project (Need help!)


    Hi All,
    So, I'm new to linux, I've always wanted to learn it but I finally have something I want to use it for, so it's time to learn.

    I know programming on a very basic level, but I think I'll be able to pick this up reasonably quick. I just need to be set in the right heading for this idea.

    What would be the recommended program/route to take if I wanted to do the following.

    I bought a Ras Pi + camera module.
    -I want to take the video in.
    --overlay an image (superimpose)
    ---and view it on a monitor.

    I saw there are programs like Kino and various others that I could use as a video editing software, however I'm looking more on the lines of having an instant display from the camera.

    Imagine if I had, let's say a picture of cross heirs, or a watermark or something, that I wanted to put over my video (live). That would be pretty simple right?

    Anyway
    I appreciate any help I can get!!!
    Thanks!
    Tim

    In seems you need to develop some kind of a "generic camera driver" and embed it into your app

    Looks like a failed spam attempt.
