Compiling in Arduino IDE:

  1. Download all files
  2. copy "src/lib/LiveOV7670Library" and "src/lib/Adafruit_GFX_Library" to Arduino "libraries" folder (If you already have "Adafruit_GFX_Library" then you don't have to copy that)
  3. Open "src/LiveOV7670/LiveOV7670.ino" in Arduino IDE
  4. Select Tools->Board->Arduino Uno/Nano
