OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Stream Webcam Video To The Net?

Mar 7, 2010

I wonder if anyone here has succeeded in streaming the video of a local webcam to the internet? Some research has turned up webcam_server Project Home Page but unfortunately it only supports v4l, not v4l2 and is no longer maintained. It seems to be possible with VLC server, but I'm a bit reluctant, because their repo is said to break other things. I still have 11.1 here.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Adobe Flash Local Settings Not Available For Facebook Embedded Video / Webcam

Jul 27, 2011

In [URL] I can right-click on a flash video and have the option to access "local settings" under "Settings" to specify configuration for webcam, mic, etc. But in Facebook I need to adjust a setting and the "Setting" option for local config is gray-ed out, I can't access it.

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4, and I've seen this in GNOME and KDE within Firefox.

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

Feb 26, 2010

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...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Open Source Video Stream Ripper?

Dec 15, 2010

I'm vaguely remembering a video stream ripper that was open source and could be compiled for linux, mac, and windows. It's name ended with ++ and I can't remember anything else Basically, it was like StreamTransport but open source and multiprotocol capable. Can anybody help me find it again? I'd be open to alternatives too of course! My basic need is to rip anything being rendered by my video card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Cheese To Record Video From Webcam?

I'm having a problem using cheese to record video from my webcam. The image is extremely slow to update. Especially when there is lots of movement it sometimes freezes for about a second.

When I use the webcam in Skype it works fine. Does anybody have a clue what might cause this and better yet, how to fix it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Blank White Box Where Webcam Video Should Be

May 6, 2010

I have a Sager NP5797 running Lucid (32-bit) with a BisonCam NB Pro (V4L2) webcam on /dev/video0 In Flash (like [URL]), everything works great. My video appears to both myself and others, and I see incoming video. (I am using the 10.1 RC, downloaded from Adobe's site) But in applications like Cheese, Skype, etc., I get a big blank white box where video should be: Cheese (as well as every other app I try) sees the camera on /dev/video0:

In Skype, the person I am calling sees my video perfectly fine. So my camera is "working" and sending video. But I cannot see my video, nor can I see their incoming video. It's all a big white box just like the one in Cheese in the shot above. Taking the other person out of the equation, when I go to use the "test" in Skype, it's just a blank white box too. The video will not draw for me.

Again, I do see video in Flash-based web apps that use the webcam. And other people are seeing my video. But webcam video (both mine and the incoming stream) won't "draw" for me. What makes V4L video not draw? I am using the binary NVIDIA driver for the GTX 280M chip in the laptop, and I am using Compiz. Though I tried turning Compiz off and Cheese still just showed the white box.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Create A Video Within Webcam's Images?

Dec 6, 2010

I have a very big image directory: One image per minute, whole a year, captured from a webcam. Now I want to make a video (15 or 24FPS) with all the webcam captures, to see how it changed during this period. I've tried automotion, but it makes a very low quality video, besides it blocks with lots of images. I've also tried dvd-slideshow, but it's not possible to make a more-than-1FPS video.

I also need to change the date in each webcam's images, because they are wrong, so it needed to overlay a little layout with the right date for each image, is that possible to manage within some application? Preferibly shell applications which supports lots of Gb of information (anyway I always could make little videos and then glue them)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Webcam - Won't Show Up As A Video Device

Jan 10, 2010

So my Microsoft Lifecam NX-3000 used to work with 9.04, but I can't seem to get anything from it now (Xubuntu 9.10). It still shows up fine when i enter lsusb, but it won't show up as a video device anywhere else. I have faith that this bug is a simple fix for someone who knows what they're doing, but unfortunately I don't. If it's relevant this is on my aging Toshiba Satellite.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam - Uvcvideo: Failed To Resubmit Video URB (-27)

Aug 20, 2011

I have a Dell 1300 running Kubuntu 11 and attached is a Logitech Pro 9000 webcam. It works OK - in the sense that Cheese, VLC etc display correctly. I'm trying to set up video streaming for security monitoring - and because the Dell is pretty slow, I need to stream at a low rate of frames/sec to keep a reasonably low cpu utilisation. I've tried various things, but the most successful is the motion package, which I can set up with a new frame each second, which is fine. However, the motion server stops after a seemingly random period with the message ...

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - VMware And VBox (Webcam Video Garbled)

Mar 25, 2010

I am running OpenSuse 11.2 64 - I have vmware Player and Vbox loaded and working fine - I have XP running in each VM - I have a Creative Live cam and was accessing it in each of the VM's, because I can't access it in Suse. This worked very well until recently. I received updates for Suse, one of which was a kernel update - I installed and rebooted. All of a sudden my time to boot took for ever - however - once up and running every thing seemed fine. After a few boots the system started booting normally and the video from my live cam in both VM's is garbled and and essentially not working right.

Video seems to work correctly in all other areas - I removed the creative software and reinstalled in each of my VM's No change. One last thing - I recently (a week or so before my problems) installed an Nvidia video card. I previously used on board video (also Nvidia) I had no problems either in the VM's or Suse until the kernel update. I have removed Vbox and reloaded and set it up (/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup) problem still there.
My OS is:Linux x86_64
New Video is: G96[GeForce 9500 GT] Driver - nvidia

I'd like to edit a few frames from some videos, and then return them to the video stream for playback. What are the best tools to do this with?

I tried exporting a frame with Kino, editing with GIMP, and then re-inserting it into Kino, but Kino rejected the attempt.

Will Kino do this, or do I need to be using something else?
