libam7xxx-0.1.3 released

After almost one year of fixes and new functionalities here is libam7xxx-0.1.3.

libam7xxx is a library to communicate with USB pico-projectors like, for instance, the Philips/Sagemcom PicoPix devices; you can read more about it in the previous stories:

The devices supported in this release are:

  • Acer C110
  • Acer C112
  • Aiptek PocketCinema T25
  • Philips/SagemCom PicoPix 1020
  • Philips/SagemCom PicoPix 2055

With this release PicoPix 1020 and 2055 are finally fully working, thanks to the people who helped fixing and testing the code, here is the entry from the NEWS file:

News for v0.1.3:

  * Better documentation
  * Ported to Windows (compiles with MinGW)
  * Added a minimal replacement of usb-modeswitch to use on systems where the
    latter is not available
  * Added support for Acer C112 (Thanks to Richard Wisenoecker)
  * Added support for Aiptek PocketCinema T25 (Thanks to Matti Koskinen)
  * Added some contrib scripts
  * Added support for setting the projectors zoom mode
  * Added multi-device support, now more than one projector can be used at the
    same time on the same system (Tested by Konstantin Lohmann)
  * Added support for Philips/SagemCom PicoPix PPX 2055
  * Fixed some problems with the supported Philips/SagemCom PicoPix devices,
    now these devices are fully working (Thanks to the Certik family)

Debian packages for i386 and amd64 are available at

If anyone knows people at Sagemcom, would you put me in contact with them? They didn't reply to my previous messages to their support service address. I'd like to ask if they may be interested in providing some test units or to sponsor some development-time to make the pico-projectors work on Android.

Here is the shortlog between v0.1.2 and v0.1.3 for those interested in the development details:

Hi Stepan,

If it is one of the supported PicoPix projectors, have you tried the Debian packages at They should work on Ubuntu 12.10; you need at least the libam7xxx0.1 and libam7xxx-bin packages.

If you need further instructions come find us on the #am7xxx IRC channel on Freenode.

Hi Antonio,

Thank you for your hard work.

I'm thinking to purchase a pico projector for use on thinkpad.
Do you think these devices and your driver will work smoothly on a usb v2 port ?

Thanks a lot,


I only have an Acer C110, but

Ritratto di ao2

I only have an Acer C110, but other people are using the other projectors supported by libam7xxx with no problems, USB2 is OK; so just pick one from above.

The driver works well, the example program am7xxx-play can be slow for some use cases but I am improving it and I should be able to do a new release in a month.

The new release will also add support for the PicoPix 2330 (the code is already in the git repository).

Ritratto di ao2

Mmh, the output just said dependency problems - leaving unconfigured, it's hard to guess what's going on exactly.

The package was compiled on Debian Wheezy so there may be some differences with Ubuntu, the dependencies of libam7xxx-bin are:

Depends: libam7xxx0.1 (>= 0.1.3), libavcodec53 (>= 6:0.8.3-1~) | libavcodec-extra-53 (>= 6:0.8.5), libavdevice53 (>= 6:0.8.3-1~), libavformat53 (>= 6:0.8.3-1~), libavutil51 (>= 6:0.8.3-1~), libc6 (>= 2.10), libswscale2 (>= 6:0.8.3-1~), libusb-1.0-0 (>= 2:1.0.8), libxcb1

Check that the packages are there, and what version you have installed.

Alternatively, you can always try to rebuild the package from source, do you know how to do that? I do not have an i386 installation of Ubuntu handy, and setting up Ubuntu pbuilder images from Debian is not immediate.

Quindi secondo te sarebbe meglio fare tutta questa procedura su Debian?! Forse provo anche rimuovere ubuntu e installare Debian a vedere come si sistema. Dici che il problema di dipendenza non esistera piu?

Ritratto di Armin

I know I'm driving you mad! But well now I'm on Debian, all files are installed (though I installed them through the Deb package installer) and they were all installed without any dependency. Now how should I start this goddamn projector?

Short version: am7xxx-play -f x11grab -i :0.0

For a full list of options see am7xxx-play --help or man am7xxx-play.

Io dicevo solo di installare le dipendenze su Ubuntu, controllando che ci fossero le versioni compatibili. Comunque su Debian sarà più facile dato che creo i pacchetti lì.

You can install the needed

You can install the needed programs with:

$ sudo apt-get install libam7xxx0.1-bin

And then you need to run a program from the command line to show something on the projector, for example:

Hi Simon,

what version of libavcodec do you have installed? The codebase in the master branch works with the 0.9 series, I didn't want to carry around any compatibility cruft.

For older versions you can apply this patch.

Hi Jakub, mind that picoproj

Ritratto di ao2

Hi Jakub,

mind that picoproj is a very basic test tool, it just sends data without performing any rescaling (that's in the man page), the image should already fit 800x480; you can use the convert program to rescale it:

convert -resize 800x480 P1261612.JPG scaled.jpg

Let me know if that helps, or join the #am7xxx IRC channel on Freenode for further assistance.

Ciao, Antonio

Hi Antonio, I apologise for

Hi Antonio,
I apologise for reacting this late, I thought I should get an email when a reaction is posted...Just found your prompt reply on your site.
Anyway, thank you very much for your help! I am now getting an image shown nicely with picoproj tool.
Now I am trying to make the am7xxx-play work:

sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/sistek/software/libam7xxx-build/lib:/home/sistek/software/ffmpeg/lib:LD_LIBRARY_PATH" /home/sistek/software/libam7xxx-build/bin/am7xxx-play -f x11grab -i :0.0 -o video_size=800x480

In fact, I get a similar behaviour with video4linux2:

am7xxx_play failed

It somehow attempts to start a stream, my webcam even blinks for a while, but immediately fails.

I have build libusbx, ffmpeg and libam7xxx from sources on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I am not too familiar with such things. Quite likely, some of these dependencies does not work as they should...?

Any suggestion would be very welcome. I can even try with the freenode, although I've never used IRC so far.

Once again, many thanks. It seems I am not too far from my goal now.


Hi Jakub, no email

Ritratto di ao2

Hi Jakub,

no email notifications, sorry, but there is a per-post feed you can subscribe to in order to follow all the comments:

BTW, about you issue: if picoproj works then the base library works; the problem with am7xxx-play could be indeed related to your self-compiled ffmpeg but I am still not sure of that.

If you join the IRC channel, or write me an email I will guide you to try with the system libraries.

Finally, I noticed something in your command lines: when you override LD_LIBRARY_PATH you repeat it in the list of paths like LD_LIBRARY_PATH, I think you meant to write $LD_LIBRARY_PATH that is with a dollar sign in front of it so that the previous value gets expanded. However in general you don't need to repeat it at all, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is by definition a list of additional paths to search for libraries before the standard ones.

I have problems with

Ritratto di Rickyx

I have problems with dependencies (libav...53) in Debian Jessie and Wheezy.
For which version you are compiling?

Thank you,

Hi Rickyx, are you talking

Ritratto di ao2

Hi Rickyx, are you talking about the debian packages at or are you compiling yourself?

FYI the git master branch now depends libav10, it compiles with no problems in Debian Unstable and should do so in Jessie too.

If you want to compile on older systems like Wheezy use the debian/0.1.4-3 tag and apply the patches in debian/patches.

Alternatively you have to backport those patches to apply to the latest code.

If there is really interest in the v0.1.5 version for Wheezy I could work on a backport branch of the Debian package.

libam7xxx is now in the official Debian Testing/Unstable repositories, so on those distributions it is a simple matter of:

If they are not you should be able to get a working setup by just installing the following packages:

I can confirm that the projector will work if you install the following 2 packages and any dependencies like the avdevice one and avformat one.

I managed to get the picoproj working and the video demo as well. -f x11grab is throw "Cannot find input format".

Antonio has been very helpful and I will update this once we (probably Antonio as I am a noob) figure it out.

I have now formatted the

I have now formatted the SDCard, installed Raspbien through NOOBS, and the 2 packages and libavdevice53 and libavformat53 from apt-get.

The same behaviour persists, x11grab is not working on Raspberry Pi 2. The initial tests with Antonio showed that x11grab might work with libavformat54.

I am hoping a recompiled version with libavformat54 of the software will become available which might make it work. I haven't recompiled linux programmes before but will give it a go and update.
