Well, what I wanted to achieve can be done transparently with the
gconfv4l2src element than comes with n800. It handles the rotation of
the webcam transparently. Can I suggest specifying this on the maemo
camera API tutorial[1]. Also, Im interested on this malomo project. I
was thinking on doing some similar project and thus I have some ideas
and I would like to join to this effort.
