Using openSUSE 11.2 I tried and failed to make the Logitech webcam E3500 work under Skype, although it works well under luvcview and cheese. Can anyone recommend a webcam that does work under skype on 11.2?
I'm using Kopete as my IM manager with the Skype plugin. I used the One Click Install tool to install Skype4py and than I enabled Skype in Kopete. Every time I try to enable Skype within Kopete I get an error box that says, "no Skype". OS: 11.2 64bit
Using Opensuse 11.3 (on an AMD64bit machine) and the latest version of the 32bit Skype package for Opensuse. Installed via links on skype.com (inc. mentioned dependencies on the skype website)Sound works fine but my webcam doesn't. It's a creative webcam instant model number: VF-0040.It works OK in Kopete, and is recognized as ZC3xx. In Skype the only webcam option is /dev/video0 which I can clearly see is not correct.
I am having this problem since the day I upgraded ubuntu from 10.04 to 10.10. Couldn't solve it then and now I would like to try again.
>> Webcam is working fine in Cheese Webcam Booth.
But it's not detected in skype. I tried this command
Code: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype >> I didn't work as last time. Error Messages of it on terminal is as under: Quote: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
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.
I have used my webcam with skype before in several ocations, but now im not able to do so.The wencam works with cheese, so i dont now where to got form here.On skype video options, it shows only one video/webcam device (CNF7017 (/dev/video0). when i with test on the options shows a gray screen, which is the same that im sending to my contacts when we video chat.
i'm trying to use video call in skype or empathy, either is fine. Neither works. In Skype I can receive video but it doesn't broadcast mine at all. In empathy it shows my video right up to the second the call connects, then the 'video call' crashes.
edit: cam is definitely working (works fine in cheese and other cam apps) just not broadcasting
Is there a webcam support for Kopete in Fedora 11?If I follow the steps here:URL....then the 1st and 2nd steps are fine but at the 3rd step, I don't have any "send webcam" (nor receive) option in the file menu. I did have it in F8.Has this been removed in F11?Tested over the MSN protocol with ports 6891-6892 open (tcp and udp).
My sister was gifted a logitech quickcam chat . The gspca_zc3xx driver is installed and running (tested with mplayer, vlc, google talk + various flash video sites) and it is running 100% ok.
it seems however that skype is STILL not interfacing directly with V4l resulting in some nasty feedback( or just no video feed) so I tried the old work around LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype (worked with my old logitech webcam on an older release) but it STILL isn't working. here is the output
Code: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skypeERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored. (<unknown>:3545): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libequinox.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Skype does not detect my webcam, despite other programs such as aMSN and Kopete being able to detect my webcam.The 'lsusb' command says the following regarding my webcam.Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:08ac Logitech, Inc. QuickCam CoolI'm using Skype version 18.104.22.168 beta which is the latest version.I'm running Opensuse version 11.3 the 64 bit version
I just got a Logitech c210 webcam, as from what I gathered this UVC cam/microphone device works with Linux ...However ... skype 22.214.171.124 can't seem to see my webcam when it's connected, even though it appears to be configured when plugged in, as the following output from dmesg shows:
Code: [20227.480098] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6 [20227.741045] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0819
I have much given up on my VX 3000 because not only the microphone doesn't work but also Skype crashes when I actually want to use it. The video only works in the settings/test video view but not for a video call.So: can anybody recommend a webcam with a microphone that works reliably on Suse 11.X and with Skype? I'm currently using Suse 11.2 but might upgrade to Suse 11.3, so it would be nice if the webcam would still work in 11.3...
I can't use the webcam with skype. I followed the instructions on the SDB Skype page of opensuse.org. I can make calls and recieve calls, but there is no video option. Sound isn't going either way during the calls. In Skype's options menu, there is a place to test the video. When I click on the "Test" button, Skype freezes and eventually the terminate application window comes up. The webcam is a Logitech that works fine in Cheese, and I've used it with previous versions of Opensuse and Skype. The only skype available that I've found is the 2.1 beta version, so that's what I'm using. I'm using Opensuse 11.4 with KDE4.
i have sony viao vgn-fz11 Can someone please help ,im new user to ubuntu been trying to get webcam working properly at the moment its upside down and does not work in skype at all just get black screen does this look correct? do i have the right driver?i will try and give as much information as i can.
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 didn't use it for a long time. But the last time I checked it Under Ubuntu, cheese was able to read from it & gstreamer properties also tested it successfully.
But now that I need the webcam, I can't get it work
gstreamer properties says " Video for Linux 2 (v4l2): Could not negotiate format".
I have a fresh install of openSUSE 11.4 with KDE. This includes ALSA and Pulseaudio.
I have a mic and speakers and a webcam. As far as I can see microphone and sound reproduction work, the webcam also works: - I can arecord and aplay - KMix works - amixer and alsamixer work (I am using microphone boost) - test sounds play - the webcam works in "Personal Settings (Configure Desktop)": Hardware > Multimedia > Phonon (test camera) - Pidgin and Empathy work with sound and video. (had to set this: gconftool-2 --set --type=string /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/audiosrc pulsesrc, without this setting it was set to alsasrc by default and Pidgin and Empathy didn't work).
I installed Skype 2.2 (also tried 2.1) and tested the video camera in Skype. Result: doesn't work. I made a test call: I hear the voice of the lady answering the call, but my own voice is not recorded. In Skype everything is set to use Pulseaudio.
I am at a total loss to understand what is going wrong here. Why does Skype not work, when everything else does??
I made this observation: When an application records something, a "Capture stream" shows up in the KMix "Capture Streams" tab. For example, when I use arecord, "ALSA capture" shows up, while I record. When I make a call on Empathy, a capture stream shows up in the said tab.
When I make a Skype call, NO capture stream shows up, so obviously Skype is not capturing anything.
i have sound but my mic capture seems to be not working in skype or well anything else and I'm confused on what to do after searching. It's an integrated mic somewhere in my laptop. I enabled capture in Kmix but that didn't seem to do anything.
