OpenSUSE Hardware :: Lifecam VX-3000 With Skype - Set Of Commands That Allow To Use My Webcam ?

Aug 11, 2011

Regarding the use of lifecam VX-3000 with skype. In this thread Microsoft lifecam Vx-3000 webcam - HELP

I found a set of commands that allow me to use my webcam within skype by running the following Code:

Unfortunately, it looks like I need to type in these lines every time I restart skype. Is there a way to automate the process, so that when I start my computer it executes the code before starting skype?

What this code does? I find it difficult to run commands without knowing what they do. Do you have to be a programmer to know about these commands or should everyone who uses suse know about that.

I switched from windows not long ago.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Video With Intel HD 3000 Graphics?

Aug 19, 2011

I recently installed openSUSE on a new Toshiba and i'm getting very choppy video while watching videos on ....., justin.tv, etc. The video is fine as long as I don't full screen. However, when I try to fullscreen a stream on justin.tv or a ..... video, it instantly becomes choppy and video is extremely delayed in relation to the sound. The sound still continues at it's regular pace, however the video lags behind and is just choppy in general.Also, not sure if this helps, but i'm running an i3 2310M.

SUSE :: Unable To Use MS VX-3000 Webcam With 11.2

Jun 2, 2010

I have installed the gspca2 driver for my webcam, but in kopete, I still get only a wierd multi colored/scrambled thick line across the top of the webcam screen and the rest remains blank. This is in Kopete.In Kopete, under video, under device, under input, it shows "sonixj" and the device is "USB camera". I know the webcam works in Win7/Vista/XP, but I am trying to get away from using those OSs.

I had tried the 1 click SuSE install of the gspca2 driver but it wouldn't complete the install. Doing it in YaST directly seemed to work but I still get the same bad screen when using the webcam, which has it's LED light up.

Ubuntu :: Webcam Is Not Working On Skype And Cheese?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I can't seem to get skype to work. See, the person I'm chatting with can receive video and audio, I can receive audio, but I cannot see them, even when they engage their webcam.

My cheese can take pictures from my webcam, but I can't see the screen of the webcam before I take the picture, it's only black, and when I click on the take the picture, it'll take it, and display it correctly, but the screen is black. Now, I just dled camorama, but it's saying "Could not connect to video device C/dev/video0). please check connection." I don't know what this means.

My lsusb says:

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub[code]....
The Ricoh Webcam is a built in cam, but it doesn't work either. I have an external cam that used to work, but the cam works, it's just the display that seems effed up.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cheese Can't Detect Webcam?

Feb 3, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop with a built-in webcam. I installed Cheese months ago and it worked fine then -- pics, videos, the works.

Now, after some updates recommended by Canonical, Cheese is telling me that it can't find the webcam. I tried dumping it an reinstalling, but to no avail.

Anyone out there know what's going on? Did the updates knock out a hardware driver?

Ubuntu :: Moving / Resetting The Cheese Webcam Folder?

Oct 11, 2010

Every time I start up my webcam in cheese, a folder is created called 'Webcam' in my home folder, and if this folder is deleted, it will be recreated when another session is started, i would ideally like to just have this folder hidden but if i do that then it will be recreated, so is there anyway of having the folder created as a hidden .Webcam? there is no option for this in the cheese menu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cheese Wont Show Webcam?

Jul 6, 2011

For some reason Cheese works for the 1st time when I launch the application fresh but after I use it and I close the application, the next time I go to use it, it doesn't show any video from my web cam. I can see the web cam turn on and it activates the flash LED however I don't see any video. I reboot my Ubuntu PC and it works fine the next time but I have to always reboot my PC and it sucks.

Software :: Cheese / Webcam Recording Success Stories?

Feb 12, 2010

Not sure if this is right place or not but i'm looking for some success stories of Cheese and external webcams or built in netbook cameras. Would love to see some actual examples.

Here is the type of behavior I seem to always* get:[URL].. *I have tried 3 different computers, dell 8100 (1.5 ghz p4, 256 ram), ibm thinkcentre (1.4ghz p4, 512 ram), ibm thinkpad t42 (1.7ghz p3, 1gb ram) and several different webcams (2 old logitech cameras, ps3eye, ms lifecam show) running either fedora or ubuntu.

see also this post for some other movies of a system i had similar problems with:[URL].. here is a list of cams that work with skype but i find skype and cheese to be different as it's the RECORD feature that seems to cause the problems. displaying the feed is never too bad, but recording seems to break the feed. [URL].. So i'm looking to know if anybody out there has had success with cheese or another webcam RECORDING program on linux. i'm working on several videobooth [URL]... and would love to permanently ditch my mac for linux but having trouble finding acceptable performance in this area.

Fedora Hardware :: Logitech Webcam Works With Cheese But Not With Skype

Sep 4, 2009

I was impressed with the hardware detection in Fedora -- it picked up my wireless & webcam right out of the box. The odd thing is, that Fedora picked up the webcam right away, and it worked perfectly in Cheese (I was able to take both photos & video), but when I try to use it in Skype all I get is green "snow". The webcam is a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Feed Laggy And Choppy

Feb 25, 2011

I have three different webcams. All Logitech. Two are "cheapo" ones, and one is a more expensive, HD one. I'm running the stock Maverick desktop install, with no specifical extras for the video or the like. I plug in the webcam (doesn't matter which one I use) and it is picked up and can be used. Not a problem, but when I view the feed, the its laggy and choppy. If I plug in the cam onto my Windows XP or Window 7 installs (on the same laptop), the feed is smooth and has no issues. So I figure it has to be something to do with my settings or configurations. Problem is, I can't seem to find out what I need to tweak to smoothen or improve the feed. I've tried reducing the resolution of the feed to the minimum, but that hasn't helped.

Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. If I film myself typing at my laptop keyboard, I can see my hands move around the keyboard when I view the footage in Windows, but when I film it in Ubuntu, it's very jumpy, and my hands seem to jump about all over the keyboard -- almost as if something can't keep up.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: IHome Webcam - 11.3 - Cheese Freezes And WXcam Comes Up With A Green Screen With No Video

Jul 27, 2010

OpenSUSE seems to have an issue picking up and working with my newer webcam. This webcam does work with linux, it works with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid and Linux Mint 9 Isadora but openSUSE 11.3 doesnt seem to like it. Information about webcam drivers seems to be missing now, I tried the drivers repo but no luck. Cheese freezes and WXcam comes up with a green screen with no video. This is a gateway product by my understanding but it seems to be linux compatible, especially with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel that both Ubuntu and openSUSE use right now. But for some reason its not quite clicking with openSUSE 11.3

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Messy Video Playback Also Appears When Use Cheese To Capture Video With My Webcam

video playback is like I have applied a blueish sepia filter over it. And this is just the playback from totem player or mplayer, and not the playback from ..... (and generally online streaming) - this works just fine. this messy video playback also appears when I use cheese to capture video with my webcam. Note that the preview picture of the video file on nautilus has the natural colours it should have.

at first when I installed the os this particular problem didn't exist, but it came up the time I decided to follow the "comprehensive multimedia guide". So now I have all the pros of following the guide, but this is a major con...

Jul 8, 2010

I am on Ubuntu Lucid (updated till date). I am using Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic Recently I am not being able to run Cheese (webcam tool). When run it is crashing. Upon starting it from prompt I noticed the following error : libv4lconvert: Error decompressing JPEG: fill_nbits error: need 2 more bits The program 'cheese' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.

I checked in Skype and there the webcam is working fine. I tried with Camorama but that always gives an error "Could not connect to /dev/video0, please check connections."
