Is it possible to use kinect v2 as webcam on windows 8.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    For my master thesis I would like to use the projector calibration software from the Brown University (http://mesh.brown.edu/calibration/software.html) to calibrate a projector with respect to a kinect v2. In order to do this the calibration software needs access to the kinect v2 device as a webcam. I found a lot of tutorials that show how to set up a kinect v1 as a webcam but none for kinect v2. 

    Does anyone know how to set up kinect v2 as a webcam?

  • Hello Habedieehre,


      I am also working on my master thesis and need the Kinect v2 to work as a webcam, but I am using it for another area of study.

    Have you tried testing these solutions (I am still testing them all)?

    With the KinectCamv2 I am able to open the Kinect RGB with AMCap and Skype.

    If you are able to figure out how to use the rgb camera as a webcam, please let me know. If I figure out anything I will tell you.

    All the best,

    Ivan
