I've encountered many issues surrounding webcam image control (contrast, saturation, focus, zoom, etc...) within Octolapse, and am looking for any suggestion that don't rely on mjpegstreamer that will work in windows, macos and linux at a minimum. I doubt this is a one size fits all thing, but thought it would be wise to ask others here first. Ideally I'd also be able to control the resolution, but that may not be in the cards. Also, ideally I'd be able to control the raspicam as well.
If there is a good solution for a single OS I'm open to writing different versions for each OS if need be, but I want the solution to be as simple as possible (obviously).
