AVG Support Community
I am creating a program with Qt on Windows using OpenCV for people with disabilities and using a webcam. When I launch the program, sometimes, the webcam won't start. I spent many hours on this and I finally pinpoint the problem to "AVG Protection". About 50% of the time I launched the program, I was receiving empty frames (the webcam opened succesfully but the frames were empty). With AVG Protection uninstalled, it works 100% of the time. Even if I tried disabling AVG antivirus the sometimes my frames were empty. I really had to uninstall AVG Protection.
I tried adding the program in the AVG exceptions but it did not change anything.
What could I do ? I want to deploy my application to other people and the basic solution "don't use AVG" does not seem good.
Thank you very much,
AVG make no mistake about it you guys clearly crossed a line and infringed upon perhaps a legal matter blocking the use of hardware, and limiting software functionality in legit software that has valid signatures.You are essentially controlling software through a white/blacklist from your company where customers have no control over or any kind of setting in the program.You are stepping in legal shit and each day longer it takes for you to fix it the shit smells worse and worse
SHAME ON YOU AVG !!!
