Fedora :: QuickCam Ultra Vision" Webcam With A Microphone?

Oct 19, 2009

I own a "Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Ultra Vision" web cam with a microphone. I have successfully installed it, I can get fedora to recognize it and even view video through all the web cam applications I've tried including vlc, cheese, and camstreem. It was automatically detected by Fedora and took no "tweaking" of my own. The problem I'm having is I don't know how to access the audio. When I go to the pulse audio applet or volume contol (mixer) I can see my quick cam as in input, and I can even watch the audio meter move and respond to sounds I am making. But I don't know how to tell any applications where to get sound from... my video source is /dev/video0, what is my audio source? Since my audio level meter moves when i say things or make sounds, I assume it is there and ready, I just don't know how to access it. I figure this should be pretty simple. I'd like to be able to record video/audio, or even just use the mic separately.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro For Mac Doesn't Work In Skype?

May 18, 2010

I am running Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 on a Sony Vaio. I recently dropped $100 on a Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac, on the recommendation on the ubuntu wiki [URL].. that it would "work perfectly" in Skype. In Skype, it did nothing. No Audio, no video, light wouldn't even come on. Essentially a $100 dollar paperweight. I really think someone should correct this misleading information on the wiki.

I followed the kludge listed here [URL].. to get the video to work. By executing Skype with the shell script listed in the first post, I could get the video test to work, but no audio, and when I tried to call someone, when I turned on video, Skype quit suddenly. For the record, yes, I unmuted the device in the Sound Mixer in the top right corner.

Later on, I tested it with guvcview, and the cam worked perfectly in that program. It's only Skype that doesn't know what to do with it. When I execute Skype in Terminal I get the following output repeating over and over again:

Code:
X Error, request 20, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
X Error, request 15, minor 0, error code 3 BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error
libv4l2: error setting pixformat: Input/output error

Ubuntu :: Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 Webcam?

Aug 3, 2010

I have two computers--a Zareason machine (no details yet) running 8.04. I also have a Dell 1525N laptop running 9.10. I purchased recently a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 Webcam. The video works on both systems with Ekiga and Cheese. I can also see the video in Flash applications (but *not* in Meebo even with the other person logged into Meebo). (Both computers are running the latest Flash plugins).

However, the built-in microphone is problematic. With 8.04, I get playback when I test it under System|Preferences|Sound--but with lots of echo. But I get no sound with any Flash chat applications. I've not been able to test it with Ekiga as the testee (a Windows 7 user) can't get Ekiga to work on his machine (probable Windows firewall issues). I haven't installed Skype because Skype pulled its 8.04-compliant .deb packages and I've not tried yet to compile it from source code.

With 9.10, the webcam works with Cheese (video) and I can get both webcam and mic to work with Skype. (Again, no test result possible for Ekiga until I get a testee). However--my Win7 testee friend says that when I log into Googlechat using Pidgin on my 9.10 laptop, a webcam icon appears next to my userID telling him that I have an open webcam (even when there's NONE actually plugged in). He doesn't see the same icon when I log into my 8.04 desktop with no webcam plugged in. I have searched Pidgin and my System preferences and see no evidence that any of these applications or my system sees a webcam that's not there.

So--how to get the mic to work? (I am thinking the simplest answer will be to simply upgrade my desktop to Lucid). And also, why the webcam icon in Googlechat even when no webcam is plugged in on my 9.10 laptop??

Hardware :: Logitech Webcam (quickcam Express Plus) Won't Work With Ubuntu 8.04?

May 17, 2009

I'm having a confusing time with this webcam. When I plug it in, dmesg shows it is recognised and needs the module gspca_spca561

Code:

[ 6644.595789] usb 1-6: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 4
[ 6644.707379] usb 1-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[ 6644.752736] Linux video capture interface: v2.00

[code]....

However, there is no result in skype, ekiga, or awetv, although the device /dev/video0 is created. there was a kernel update from Ubuntu 2.6.24-23-generic to 2.6.24-24-generic, and the webcam magically started working, using a different module, gspca. However, after some celebration, I found that my usb tv dongle, which uses the dvb_usb_af9015 module, ceased working.

I corrected this by recompiling the dvb_usb_af9015 module, using source from http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/ ----after another celebration, I found that the webcam had stopped working again, and I have not been able to make it work since, despite recompiling the gspca module from http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html. Attempting to insert the gspca module produced from this gives:

Code:

insmod: error inserting 'gspca.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module Another thing I've noted, is that the gspca module will work when I boot into earlier kernels (eg 2.6.24-21-generic).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Configuring Webcam And Microphone

Apr 4, 2010

I've been having problems setting up my microphone and webcam for internet use. I won a Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 on the internet and it doesn't work on ubuntu. I'm sure it works because I also have Windows Vista installed on my laptop and it works perfectly well when using Skype, Windows Live Messenger and even Gtalk.

This webcam model has an integrated microphone, which doesn't work either, even though it works just fine on Windows. I have tried to configure the mic, but when I test-record the sound all I can hear is just noise. I have test-recorded using a headset (which also works on Windows), but I didn't have any success, so I have to believe that I haven't configured something the way it was supposed to be or that a driver is missing.

Ubuntu :: Hp Pavilion, Webcam Microphone Not Working Anymore?

Mar 23, 2010

I have an HP dv4 1313dx, pavilion notebook computer. The Built in webcam seems to work OK, but I have absolutely no sound registering when I speak over webchat , or over just sound recordings when I talk at the computer. I'm not sure if it's a software issue or not. I upgraded to 10.4 beta because 9.10 wouldn't let me run my wireless card. So upgrading to the new beta version solved that, but as I said I noticed the built in mic on my notebook isn't picking up any sound. This is whether I'm using Skype, sound recorder, or AMSN for webchats.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Microsoft Webcam VX3000 - Microphone Not Working ?

Jul 14, 2010

After having fixed the video on my webcam to use it with Skype I want to use the microphone as well...

Skype offers two microphones that seem to be related to the USB webcam. I have tried both of them and with different settings in kmix where I see a tab called "usb camera" with a microphone slider and a tick box. There is also an option to use "audio gain control". no success with all possible combinations.

Then I tried to use the microphone with a small software called "flrec", no success either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Disappears When Running Webcam On HP, Lucid?

May 10, 2010

I just installed ubuntu lucid x64 on an HP dv7-3065dx and even though the installation went pretty smoothly, every time I open cheese or anything else that uses the webcam, the microphone all of a sudden cuts off. It doesn't receive input. However if I use the microphone without camera then the microphone works.... Is the webcam somehow crashing the microphone?? Is there something wrong with pulseaudio? The webcam works great and is recognized as "HP Webcam".

Ubuntu :: Win 7 Ultra Slow After Installation

Aug 4, 2010

I'm new to the linux thing. I've just installed Ubunto 10.04 on my Dell Studio (Core i7, 8Gb RAM).Whenever I boot Windows now, it takes AGES. Atleast about 10 minutes to be fully operational with decent speed of app loading. I know it's mentioned in the Ubuntu documentation that booting will slow "a little bit" but my 4-months old semi decent computer is now behaving a bit like my Commodore 64 used to when it was on tape drive

Debian Installation :: Partitioning Fails On Sun Ultra 450?

Apr 3, 2011

So, I've got as far as partitioning the hard disks on my Sun Ultra 450 Enterprise system, but it always fails with:

SILO (Sparc Linux Loader) can only boot the kernel off of a disk with the "sun" partition table. In the current partitioning scheme the kernel is going to be installed on the /boot partition located on a disk with the partition table of type "msdos".

What is this error message trying to say in its ambiguous way?

I selected automatic partitioning, but it got me to the same place as manual partitioning before it failed in the same way.

I installed four used hard drives in this system - they may have come from PCs for all I know. However, they are SCSI SCA drives, which makes it hard for me to believe they came from a PC environment.

If they did, do I need to to a low-level (or high-level) format of these drives to wipe out the "msdos"ness of them? If so, how do I do that in the SILO installer?

Debian :: Force Single User Mode On Sun Ultra 5

Apr 26, 2010

I have successfully installed Debian on a Sparc Ultra5, 270MHz SparcIIi CPU, 384MB RAM, 40GB HD. However, once Debian tries to load Gnome (right before the login screen) the screen goes blank, and so the machine becomes unusable. I booted of the NetInstall CD, into rescue mode, and executed a shell, but apparently there is currently a problem when running nano from a live CD, so I can not edit the xorg.conf file when I boot the live CD. So, I would like to just boot the install into single user mode, but I dont know how. Currently, when the Ultra5 is powered on, it tries to boot with command "boot", so I hit "Stop A". From there I type "boot Disk1" to boot Debian normally. To boot from a CD, I would type "boot cdrom" So any idea on how I can boot from Disk1 in Single User Mode?

My only other idea is to hook up another monitor I have which may be able to deal with whatever resolution Gnome is defaulting to. However, Id rather just boot into single user mode.

Debian Hardware :: Sun Ultra 2 Xorg Configuration - Only Resolution Available Is 1152x900

Jul 6, 2011

I have setup a Sun Ultra 2 with Debian 6. It currently has dual 200MHz sparc I CPUs, 512MB RAM, and a Creator 3D 15MB video card. I have in the mail on its way to me dual 300MHz sparc II CPUs and enough RAM to max this thing out at 2GB. Anyway, I am currently having an issue configuring xorg.conf. The only resolution available to me is 1152x900 (which isnt even a supported resolution by my monitor), but Id like to use 1280x1024. I have tried for probably over a week now to no avail. I will paste my current xorg.conf file (the relevant parts), and please keep in mind that I have been messing with this file for a while so sorry if it looks bad.

Ubuntu :: Ultra Low Video Mode / Roll Back Changes I Made?

Sep 15, 2010

In an attempt to install specific video drivers for the Intel 845 chipset, I followed the instructions here: http://www.downloadatoz.com/driver/a...ntu-10-04.html

Now, the system will only boot in recovery mode, and then at 640x480 resolution. When booting, it gives the option to return to default or manually configure, but if I try to select either option and click OK, nothing happens. Once in the GUI, it shows no proprietary hardware drivers installed. Is there a way to roll back the changes I made, or return to more default settings without reinstalling the OS?
