KinectCam version 1.1

KinectForWindowsHi, today I finished working on KinectCam version 1.1 that you can download from KinectCam post on my blog. It is located at Kinect for PC and Skype means KinectCam page. I was asked several times to create version with some settings that user can change. And I was wondering some time how to put settings on local computer in most convenient way. First idea was to use registry, but unfortunately webcam driver has no access to registry of operating system. Second idea was to use XmlSerializer and some self serialized XML file, however idea of control all settings store and location was not look nice to me. And at last I realized that every project in .NET environment has in properties Settings tab where I can create settings for application or library and .NET framework takes care about all rest things for me for free, so it was much better option. And I could use as configuration for example MyLibrary.Properties.Settings.Default.Angle property with both getter and setter and forget about all pain element of any custom configuration storage. So, anyway version of KinectCam 1.1 is ready for download and well tested with nice option of angle control. So far I had about 5500 downloads of this solution and I am very happy about that. If you have idea how to improve this small product and what settings are worth to add please feel free to comment this post and let me know. See you next time on coding by to design and enjoy new KinecCam.
