GSOC 2013 proposal

* ''Summary'':

1) My idea is of creating different type of effects in video. Take a look at the below link which shows 1080p real time video filtering:


2) Color2gray (video will be shown in black and white to create an old movie effect). How current movie stars will appear in black and white movie, etc.


3) While watching video, we can take snapshots and we can do all kinds of stuff with it like image cloning.


Basically my idea is doing fun and entertaining part with the videos(user created) Smile
Dont pull my leg if you dont like the idea...I am just expressing myself (I like creative stuff) Smile

* ''How will I achieve this'': Will be done in c++. External image library OpenCV will be needed.
* ''What will the project focus on'': User created videos.
* ''Benefits'': User can do fun and entertaining stuff with this.
* ''Goals'': Implementing all of the above will be too much. Maybe cut down a bit or implement the feature which is needed first.
* ''What does it touch in XBMC'': I thing it will be good if we add this as a separate module(as a plugin maybe) so that the main XBMC code is not touched.
* ''Requirements'': c++, OpenCV.
* ''Possible mentors'': Place to add possible mentors (Team-XBMC will add this).
* ''forum/contact name''

No worries, it was an easy fix :)
Is opencv available for all supported platforms?
Making the video renderers (or players) use OpenCV might be quite a lot of work.
Doing the suggested effects in shaders would be a lot simpler, obviously wouldn't work as well on embedded devices.

And it will be rather impossible to add this without touching xbmc code and as a plugin I am afraid. bobo1on1 did a download of the video for boblight IIRC which plugins can access, but that is more of "what is displayed" and less "let me modify what is displayed".
I am trying to manage live streaming add on or you can say a button which start live video stream from camera attached over my Raspberry Pi. but i am not able to achieve it, i am getting all other stuff inside that app but as i click on the button which have live streaming function nothing happens. and in /.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log i get following lines

12:27:17 T:2910000144 ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<--

Help please. Thanks in Advance
