    How to install Camera Server

    To run the example camera applications within the series 60 emulator I am supposed to install the camera server. I found and downloaded the Camera_Serv.zip file from developer.nokia.com without any problems. When I unzip the file I find a complex directory structure with lots of lib, dll, and exe files but I don't know how to go about installing it in the emulator. I have looked for installation directions but havn't found them anywhere. Can anyone tell me how to actually install the camera server? (I should warn the reader that so far I have only run example applications within the emulator using Visual Studio to compile them from the auto-generated v6 project files.)

    How much functionality will the camera server make available within the emulator? Is it possible to emulate taking photos? I would even be happy if I had to supply fake images for the server to return. Do I need to connect some sort of webcam to the computer?

    RE: How to install Camera Server

    Check the Snapshot example in the SDK.

    There is a way to use PC Web cam images inside the emulator. There are two different pictures based quality settings (EQualityHigh,EQualityLow) at the location:
    valo_qqvga.mbm // 160x120x24bpp
    valo_vga.mbm // 640x480x24bpp

    You can write an application to update these files content based on your webcam, to show your webcam images on the emulator.
