This page has Frequently Asked Questions about SwisTrack. If your question isn't here, feel free to ask on the mailing list!

Where can I get SwisTrack?[edit]

Right now, the best version to use is the latest version from svn. Check it out at https://swistrack.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/swistrack

What is the license?[edit]

SwisTrack is released under the Gnu Public License (GPL).

Is there a python interface?[edit]

There exists a swig wrapper for SwisTrack. You can call SwisTrack from python and get images out for later processing. You cannot (yet) write new components in python.

I'm having trouble with a double image on SwisTrack. Is it because I uploaded/converted my movies on a Mac and transferred them to Windows?[edit]

Yes. To avoid this problem, do NOT use Mac for loading and converting. Upload the media onto the same machine loaded with SwisTrack and convert to AVI if necessary. This will prevent video upload problems as wells as double images.
