Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Does Not Work For Skype?

Apr 20, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel CS110 - Webcam Does Not Work On Skype?

Apr 18, 2011

I am currently running Lucid 10.04 Ubuntu through Wubi and am having MAJOR problems with my webcam. I can use this webcam on windows vista without a problem and very nice picture quality, but when I try and use it on Ubuntu I run into some snags. The webcam is connected and works, kind of, on "cheese", but when I run a test on skype it is just a black box.I have found some code through the forums that allows me to run skype via terminal and will let my webcam work as well as it will on Cheese. Now, when it does run the picture is very blue and dark as well as extremely laggy compared to when ran on Windows Vista.

Ubuntu :: Webcam Doesn't Work With Skype?

Jan 30, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: SKYPE : Can't Receive Webcam Feed / Enable This?

Feb 15, 2010

My webcam works. It works in Cheese and apparently the person I connect with on skype can see my feed. They claim their webcam works fine, but I can't get their feed: instead, I just get a white box. When I try to test my own webcam, I get a similar white box. I think there's something wrong with the way skype is configured on my laptop, but I can't figure it out.

I'm running ubuntu 9.04 on an acer laptop with an acer crystal eye webcam. I installed skype by downloading the binary directly from the website.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam In Skype - The Green Light Comes On By The Built In It?

Mar 19, 2011

I have a ASUS K52J.I tried cheese.It was initially upside down. Then I tried Video for linux device preferences.When I checked vertival flip, that fixed cheese. But it was still upside down in skype.I tried downloading skype from the webpage, and from synaptic.I tried running skype in sudo.I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && L

D_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype but i get: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored

and I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.I tried this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
When skype loads up, i go to the options>video>test. The green light comes on by the built in webcam, then i get a segmentation fault and skype crashes: /usr/local/bin/skype: line 2:4055 Segmentation fault LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

Then I tried:LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so then running skype and i got the segmentation fault again.I may have missed some threads on this but everyone else seemed to be thanking someone for fixing their problem by now.Finally I tried threating my computer with a Windows installation. But I think both me and the computer knew it was a hollow threat,

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDE Webcam Won't Work / Fix It?

May 12, 2010

I'm using Wubi to dual boot 9.10 off windows xp. I have been having very good luck figuring things out using this ubuntu forum, which I am more grateful for than any of you could ever imagine, But I have a webcam issue I just can't figure out. Heres my question. I just recently bought a VERY cheap usb webcam from a company named HDE. There doesn't seem to be a specific name or even model number for this webcam, but here is the web page of the webcam I bought, http://www.hdeshop.com/USB-3-LED-PC-...B0015TJNEY.htm The website only provides drivers for windows vista and windows xp, but I figured there might be a chance or possibility that I could force this webcam to work on ubuntu 9.10. I plugged in the webcam and it did show up in skype, but the picture is all green and there is a double of me.

Plus, the actual webcam device will not show up in skype, I can't select the webcam, but regardless it still shows a green double vision image when I test it or do a video call.Skype seems to be the only thing this webcam kind of works with, It will not work with Cheese though and doesn't show an image in gstreamer. I want to mention that when I go to Cheese Preferences there is a webcam device that appears and sayse "USB 2.0 Camera (/dev/video0)" but I can't select it. I'm not sure what to do about this or how to fix it? I've searched around the internet and read the ubuntu documentation on webcams but really haven't had any luck for my specific webcam. I would just like the webcam to be detected by ubuntu 9.10, to work properly in skype, and work in cheese so I can record video's.
