You need only WonderLibraryV2 if you are a client to the WonderServer

Wrapper.h contains a method for accessing video streams without having to use Qt.

Build Instructions

For WonderLibrary you will need:

  1. OpenCV (Version 1.1pre1a)
  2. Qt (I am using 4.5.0) (Works with 4.5.2)
  3. Berkely Db (I am using 4.7.25)

For the Server you will need the above items plus:

  1. videoInput (I am using version 0.1995)

Note that qt does not come prebuilt on windows - presently. You must downloaded and compile the source ( and install the visual studio plugin ( (Works with the open source version.)

The following variables must be defined on your system (Note: they should not include the trailing slash…not sure that it matters though)

  • QTDIR - Should point to the directory where qt was built. Should contain lib and include directories.
  • BDBINCLUDEDIR - Should point to the include directory for the Berkeley DB library
  • BDBLIBDIR - Should point to the directory where the Berkeley DLLs and .lib files reside
  • OPENCVDIR - Should point to the directory where you installed opencv. Should contain lib and include lib, cv, and cxcore directories
  • PLATFORMSDKDIR - Should point to the platform sdk for windows

Once these are defined, you can build the project.

One quick note: The Qt typically builds both the debug and release versions of its library. Opencv only produces release versions (as far as I know); likewise for the platformsdk. I have chosen to build both debug and release versions of the Berkeley Db. The bottom line is that the BDBLIBDIR should point to a directory where both the debug and release versions exist. To do this, I copied these libraries to a subdirectory in the sources.


Note that the following dlls must be in your path when you run the WonderServer or Library:

  • QtNetwork[d]4.dll
  • QtCore[d]4.dll
  • QtGui[d]4.dll
  • QtXml[d]4.dll
  • libdb47[d].dll

(note the [d] indicates an optional d, depending on whether you are running a release or debug version).
