library on windows 10 tablet with Z8350 processor and intel AVStream cam problem

edited March 2018 in Library Questions

Hallo. I searched the forum but i could not find something relative.

My question and problem is: I am trying to use the video library on windows 10 (x64 win version) tablet with Z8350 processor and intel AVStream cam

I am using basic code:

        import*;   // βασικό - βιβλιοθήκη
        Capture cam;                 // βασικό - δήλωση αντικειμένου κάμερα με όνομα cam
        boolean preview = true;

        void setup() {
          size(640, 480);

          String[] cameras = Capture.list();  

          if (cameras.length == 0) {
            println("There are no cameras available for capture.");
          } else {
            println("Available cameras:");
            for (int i = 0; i < cameras.length; i++) {

            cam = new Capture(this, cameras[0]);  

void draw() {
        if (cam.available() == true) {
        image(cam, 0, 0); 


the problem is i cannot have the video working in my tablet. Also sometimes even the cameras list with println(cameras[i]); cannot be listed (i just see a grey background).

Sometimes the cam list shows but again no image (in that case a black background is shown in the selected resolution) the cameras work ok (tested) and i also tried with a usb cam but again no luck.

I updated to latest version of windows 10 and tried processing 2.2.1 and 3.3.6 both 32 and 64 versions with same response

Can anyone help that fallen to the same issue?

thank you in advance
