Ubuntu Multimedia :: Z-Star Chipset WEBCAM Not Working Due Probe Fail

Jun 7, 2010

I'm having troubles using this not so new webcam. I didnt found any thread that have a problem like mine. In older kernel versions the webcam started working compiling and installing zc3xx module, but as far as I googled and lsmod this module now comes with default kernel. As I can see, the module itself recognizes the webcam, but fails in the process.Does someone have some idea of fixing? Should I report it to launchpad (and so, which section?)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting ICM532 Chipset Based Webcam Working?

Mar 27, 2011

I have a ICM532 chipset based webcam (D-Link DSB-C320). I could not find a solution across the forums to get the camera working properly for me on Ubuntu 10.10. There is a thread [URL] concerning the same chipset on the forums, but it is quite old. I do not want to risk breaking my system while attempting the fix. It would be really helpful if you could help me on the same. Also, when I check the webcam through Cheese, I get images with alternating yellow-tinge and blue-tinge.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: (DVB-T USB) Probe Failed Error 9 On Maverick

Nov 18, 2010

I have a clean install of mythbuntu 10.10 and I am trying to get a DVB-T USB stick working for the last 2 weeks. Its a MobiDTV and it seems to have the same chipset/USB ID as EzCap_DVB_T_Stick. I followed the instructions on the [URL] and eventually got the driver compiled (I had to amend some code, change "Bool" pointers to "bool" and add a FIRMWARE MAX_NAME 30 constant). I also copied the af9035 FW file to the firmware directory.

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 15a4:1001 Afatech Technologies, Inc. AF9015/AF9035 DVB-T stick
but it is not working; probe is failing:
[ 105.104195] DRIVER_RELEASE_VERSION : v2.0-1
[ 105.104203] FW_RELEASE_VERSION : v8_8_52_0
[ 105.104209] API_RELEASE_VERSION : 200.20081203.0
[ 105.110713] [Device_init] Error 1
[ 105.110733] dvb_usb_af903x: probe of 2-5:1.1 failed with error 9

I bought the hardware with Windows 7 MCE in mind. I have no Windows 7 disk so I installed Mythbuntu on it to see if build was solid and now I don't want Windows any more.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Check If Your Webcam Is Working ?

Jun 13, 2010

I ran across this command the other day, and found it useful for a quick check to see if your webcam is working. If you have a webcam and have mplayer and mencoder installed just open a terminal and type:


And it should open a window with you webcam running. I would think it would work with any webcam. Just for the record, I am running on a Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop with a build-in cam. You can find this in mplayer man pages, but there are 191 pages even if you send the man pages to a text file. mplayer is a very powerful program and there are many more things you can do with it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - How To Get Logitech Webcam Working

Sep 21, 2010

Just found my old Logitech webcam again, and tried to get it to work on 10.04. Somehow this doesn't work. I tried searching the forum, but did not get an answer to my situation.

Here is what I can see:
After connecting (or rebooting), dmesg shows the following lines
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:08cc)
input: UVC Camera (046d:08cc) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.0/input/input5
usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo

And that's it. No message that cam was registered to /dev/video<x>. I should add that I already have another cam (Philips) that works and is registered to /dev/video0, and I also installed a Hauppauge PVR350 card that also gets registered to various /dev/video<y> files. Why the Logitech cam won't register? I'm guessing I can't do anything until this cam has its own /dev/video<x>, right?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Webcam Is Not Working

Jan 17, 2011

I just recently purchased a GTMax Flexible 12 Mega Pixel High Resolution w/ 4 LED Light & Microphone USB PC Webcam - Black from amazon.com, and attempted to use it in Ubuntu 8.10, but can't get it to work. The LEDs come on when I plug it into my laptop's usb port, but no video. I've tested it with Cheese Webcam Booth, and also an external website, but it doesn't work.Of course, though, I'm not entirely sure its really the webcam, since Cheese Webcam Booth seems to be turning on my built-in laptop webcam which might be interfering with it, and also the tokbox widget in the website doesn't completely load anyway in ubuntu, webcam or no, so I'm thinking that maybe its only Cheese and tokbox which are not working.

My OS is Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. Cheese Webcam Booth also does not work with my interal cam, though it turns it on, and I've confirmed it (i.e. cheese + internal webcam) does work in my ubuntu 9.10 32 bit which is installed in a multiboot on the same computer.

I would like to get these problems resolved, ASAP, as I need to have my webcam (at least one of them, preferably both) working in ubuntu 8.10, for that's the OS I use the most often.I will note that my laptop is a Dell Studio 1535, and since I've installed Ubuntu 8.10 on it, I've had a number of other hardware issues with it on ubuntu, but I've been able to get most of them resolved a long time ago, but the webcam thing is one that I haven't got to work since I first installed ubuntu (which was God knows how long ago).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam SN9C103 Not Working?

Feb 10, 2011

My usb webcam (SN9C103 chipset) seems to be "detected" properly in latest Ubuntu 10.10 but it doesn't actually work at all

For example I don't see it as an option in IM applications.

Here's the output of lsusb:

lab@lab-linux:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0c45:60af Microdia VideoCAM Look

I then installed a virtual machine of WinXP (w/ VMware player) inside of Ubuntu to make it work but whenever I "connect" this USB device to the virtual machine, Ubuntu hangs, which is worst

I suspect that it has to do with the fact that it's still not recognized properly in Ubuntu at first...

I need to load a driver for this webcam to work but which one? And how would I do that? modprobing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Stopped Working Properly In 10.04?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm using the 10.04 Netbook Edition on an ASUS EeePC 1005HA. Earlier, I had 9.10 Netbook Remix installed. Under 9.10NR, the webcam worked wonderfully in Cheese. Once I upgraded to 10.04NE, the webcam became sluggish to the point where it is now unusable. In video mode it captures about 1 frame per five seconds. Under 9.10NR, it regularly captured 60 fps.

Did the driver package for webcams change significantly between 9.10 and 10.04? I can't think of anything else that would cause this issue due to an OS upgrade.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Kodak S100 Webcam Not Working In 10.04?

Sep 20, 2010

ubuntu and fairly inexperienced in getting things to work. I recently bought a Kodak s100 webcam. I can get a few frames on cheese, skype, or guvcview. After that, the video feed goes to black screen. I have tried a few things I found in the forum, but have not been able to find a fix yet. Does anyone have any idea why this isn't working? Also, the webcam has a built-in microphone which I'm having trouble getting programs to recognize, such as skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Not Working (Dell SP2208WFP)

Mar 9, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu on a partition on my Dell Studio desktop and my webcam is not working. My monitor model is SP2208WFP (webcam is built into monitor). The lsusb command gives:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05a9:2643 OmniVision Technologies, Inc. Monitor Webcam

I have found some old threads about re-building and installing uvcvideo, but I'm not sure how to go about this (I think some of the information out there is outdated).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Integrated Webcam Recognized But Not Working With 10.10?

Apr 16, 2011

I recently rebooted my computer, switching from Vista to Ubuntu 10.10, 32 bit. I've had troubles with my webcam ever since. I've tried every single suggestion from the Ubuntu Forums and nothing works, and I am now quite desperate..

I'm installed Cheese but nothing else than a green dotted screen appears, I've also tried gucview which tells me that my webcam is recognized under the name of USB 2.0 Camera.

When I enter lsusb in the terminal, here is what appears:

natacha@natacha-EasyNote-MX36:~$ lsusb
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


The webcam doesn't work with any program, but since it does partially work with Cheese, I would think that I either have to install an additional driver or that my camera is not compatible with Ubuntu, which would really suck.

The closest similar case I've found on the net was this one : [URL] . Apparently it's about a Bug 16575 but the problem doesn't seem to have been resolved either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 11.04 - Acer Crystal Eye Webcam Not Working

May 9, 2011

OS: Linux Ubuntu 11.04
Machine: Acer Inspire 4730z
My webcam isn't working and I've done everything I could think of. I installed the v4l drivers and they installed perfectly and still it doesn't work.

psych@ubuntu:~$ lsusb
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:a103 Suyin Corp .....

If you notice in the terminal output to the lsmod command, v4l2_compat_ioctl32 is what I assume to be my camera, its being used by videodev and videodev is being used by uvcvideo but uvcvideo, the driver I need to use is being use by nothing.
