I just got a Logitech c210 webcam, as from what I gathered this UVC cam/microphone device works with Linux ...However ... skype 126.96.36.199 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:
[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'm running xubuntu 8.04 with LXDE, 192 mb ram on sony VAIO pcg-z600lek. I want to find a usb webcam that would work with skype (188.8.131.52.)? is there anything I should I look out for when buying such a webcam?
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 184.108.40.206 beta which is the latest version.I'm running Opensuse version 11.3 the 64 bit version
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 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.
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.
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.
Last two days I am trying to find alternative to skype. So I decided to find solution for my family, friends to chat, call (audio, video) using opensource product on linux. I have tried the following: (using same clients and gtalk accounts on both test machines)
1. Kopete 1.0.80 Firstly, I like it because it is native in opensuse KDE system. Secondly, it has optional jungle support for gtalk, which is ok for me. The only problem, I cannot turn on jingle support, because there should be talk.google.com server , but the right server is gmail.com. Only with gmail.com server I can connect to my gtalk. I was managed to do it right, but my friends do not have jingle settings (libjingle installed). What should we do? Will we be able to talk when we activate it?
2. Pidgin 2.7.10 (libpurple 2.7.10) Video calling, audio calling doesn't work at all. We using same version of pidgin on two computers, there is mention that it is calling but no progress after, nothing. Even camera turns on (no image though) but after doesn't turn off (camera light).
3. PSI 0.14 patched Psimedia installed, doesn't call at all. Says that the client reject me or busy.
4. Empathy 2.32.2 No options for video and audio hardware, nothing to change at all). Call from menu doesn't work, nothing happens after I press "call". Call from chat window impossible because buttons are grey, are not active. Now error "could not sync the state of the new nicesrc with its parent"
5. Gajim Even after writing down stun server stun.ekiga.net call buttons for video and audio call were inactive, unable to make call.
6. Ekiga Using pctel.ru. Works ok, sometimes problems with intiating video, but still something. I am not very happy because it is not XMPP.
7. Twinkle works like a charm. The only one client using which I haven't had any problems at all. The only thing to tailor is audio codec (also encryption if you like).
I hope to make a call one day and to be sure that I haven't used any closed program for it!
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 Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my dv2000 hp latpop. I also installed the Beta version of Skype. But when I test webcam in skype the light of the webcam glows but I do not see image on the test screen. the test screen remains back. Could someone suggest what could be the problem and a possible solution?PS: The webcam works fine with "Cheese"
I have difficulty with my webcam and Skype. I can see the other person but she can't see me. From a previous thread: Are you sure your camera isnt working? Supported hardware drivers are in the kernel usually. Test: press alt+f2, type gstreamer-properties go to the video tab and see if your camera is listed as a device. If yes, press the test button. This test was OK. I could see my face on the screen.
Quote: Ah, the Skype camera thing. Launch it this way: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
I tried this. It launches Skype OK, but the little window that should show what my webcam sees, appears full of black and white static.
It recognized the webcam alright. But after an update perhaps a couple of months ago, it no longer does. Skype is Beta version 220.127.116.11. If I go to Options, Video devices, it shows me only one option for webcam, namely Quote:USB Camera (05a9:a511) (/dev/video0)I click on test but nothing happens. I can communicate and see the other person, but she doesn't see me
I am running Maverick 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-22 (32 bit) on an HP DV2000 with Skype version 18.104.22.168The webcam is detected by lsusb as Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia Sonix USB 2.0 CameraI have tried some of the normal fixes found on many other threads (and HERE), including running the following commands from the terminal:
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop computer. In general things work pretty well but I cannot get the webcam to work in Skype. It's a Zebronics webcam, not sure of the model number. I installed Cheese to see if it shows videos from the webcam connected to the computer and it does. In Skype preference I can see that Skype looks for the webcam in /dev/video0 but apparently it can't find anything there.
I wish there was some client program in Ubuntu/Linux which supported both audio call and video chat on the yahoo network. Kopete supports only video and Gyache is not compatible with the new Yahoo 10 protocol or whatever it is. Extremely frustrating for someone who is trying to get others to use Ubuntu instead of Windows.
