    If it is in OpenCV probably you can use code from tutorials? (https://learnopencv.com/opencv-qr-code-scanner-c-and-python/) Or ZBar: http://zbar.sourceforge.net/ https://github.com/mchehab/zbar - there are builds for Windows

  • zbar

    ZBar is an open source software suite for reading bar codes from various sources, including webcams. As its development stopped in 2012, I took the task of keeping it updated with the V4L2 API. This is the main repository for it. There's a clone at at LinuxTV.org, and another one at gitlab. (by mchehab)
