About

The freenect driver provides an "asynchronous" interface where you provide callbacks and it calls them when sensor data is available. There is another way of thinking about the data by having a "synchronous" interface where you call a function to get an image "freenect_sync_get_depth" or "freenect_sync_get_rgb" and it blocks and gives you back the data.

This is implemented by using a thread to handle the callbacks and a buffer to provide an interface for the client. You are guaranteed to get the buffers in order by timestamp (e.g., you won't get something older than your last). You may not get all frames with this interface (e.g., there may be gaps); however, a 'best effort' is made.

int freenect_sync_get_video(void **video, uint32_t *timestamp, int index, freenect_video_format fmt);

   Synchronous video function, starts the runloop if it isn't running                                                          
   The returned buffer is valid until this function is called again, after which the buffer must not
   be used again.  Make a copy if the data is required.

int freenect_sync_get_depth(void **depth, uint32_t *timestamp, int index, freenect_video_format fmt);

   Synchronous depth function, starts the runloop if it isn't running
   The returned buffer is valid until this function is called again, after which the buffer must not
   be used again.  Make a copy if the data is required.

       timestamp: Populated with a pointer to the associated timestamp  
       index: Device index (0 is the first)
       fmt: Valid format
