Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Microphone Doesn't Work In Cheese And Skype / Why Is So?

Jan 21, 2010

I am using UNR 9.10

Sound recording from build-in mic was fine in skype and cheese after i installed UNR in my Acer Aspire One 110L in early December last year.

But somehow, i just realized that my sound recording was not functioning when i use skype this morning.

(i don't know since when this problem occur as i never use skype and cheese in past few weeks and i did update a few time from synaptic and install ubuntu-boot kernel)

just now i remove ubuntu-boot and reinstall the 2.6.31-17-generic kernel and run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure pulseaudio

but skype and cheese still does not record from build in microphone but only record from external microphone.

One weird thing is Sound recorder do record from both the build-in mic and external mic.

i tried "parec -r test.wav" and "parec -p test.wav" and it also record from both mic.

Anyone know how to configure my netbook so that the internal mic work on skype?

Software :: Replacing Skype By SIP Client But No Audio In Ekiga

Apr 15, 2010

Skype works fine on openSUSE 11.2, but I'd like to use another application with a more open protocol (SIP) for PC-to-PC calls. Ekiga seems to be what I'm looking for, but I have a problem with audio. When I launch the echo test call, video is displayed correctly (I see myself), but I can't hear anything (I guess I am supposed to hear a ring, and maybe some instructions?...). Nothing seems to be recorded either. I tried all the different audio settings in Preferences/Audio - no luck.

I searched for some information on the web but couldn't really find anything. The troubleshooting test (arecord -D plughw:0,0 -c 1 -r 8000 -f S16_LE - | aplay -D plughw:0,0 -c 1 -r 8000 -f S16_LE -) from [URL] works fine. So what to look for? Does anyone here use ekiga successfully? How did you configure your audio? Or would you recommend another SIP client?

Ubuntu :: Webcam Is Not Working On Skype And Cheese?

Jan 18, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Usb Webcams Work Fine In Cheese But Not In Skype?

Nov 4, 2010

I wonder if someone might be able to help with a webcam problem I'm having (or point me in the direction of a previous thread on the subject?). I'm trying Xubuntu on my wife's elderly Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop. It's working beautifully for the most part. But I've tried two different usb webcams, both of which are recognized by Cheese but don't work in Skype.

In Skype, what happens is that Skype is aware that a webcam is present. It does NOT say "no webcam detected". But in Skype Options, when I visit the Options for "Video Devices", and click on the "Test" button to test the webcam, nothing happens at all.

And when I make a test video call to a friend, with video turned on, all the friend sees is a black screen where the image should be, and a little turning symbol presumably to indicate "please wait for image to appear". It never appears.

Fedora Hardware :: Logitech Webcam Works With Cheese But Not With Skype

Sep 4, 2009

I was impressed with the hardware detection in Fedora -- it picked up my wireless & webcam right out of the box. The odd thing is, that Fedora picked up the webcam right away, and it worked perfectly in Cheese (I was able to take both photos & video), but when I try to use it in Skype all I get is green "snow". The webcam is a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Add 264 Codec To Ekiga?

Jan 17, 2010

I'm trying, reeeeally trying to use Ekiga. But the video quality is horrible. So I started messing with the settings, lo-and-behold I find info about h.264 and how fantastic it is. Well, I say to myself, let's try that on for size.

What? No h.264 option in Ekiga. That's weird, especially considering they have supported it since 3.0 and I'm using the version in the Karmic repos, 3.2.5. Not free, ok, I'll just install it then, right?

x264 package didn't do it. A little ffmpeg install as well. libavcodec52, which uninstalled a buttload of other stuff also. Even dl'd and installed libopal3.6.4-plugins-non-free. All to no option for the h.264 codec option in Ekiga.

Oddly enough, the libopal non free plugins DID add the iLBC audio codec into Ekiga as on option. Why not h.264? What am I missing? Also, why is this SO difficult? There is not any decent documentation that I can find out there that goes over this. Google has failed me.

All I have in the video codecs is theora and h261.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Configure Ekiga (H232 Account)

Jan 2, 2010

I am not getting very good sound from skype. I wondered if Ekiga was better than skype so I have:

Installed it.
Obtained a sip address.
adjusted the ports on my router as below
set up the user by way of the configuration assistant.

And still I see nothing and hear nil. I am not getting an error message. When I run the test address it immediately reports it is done. I set up the H232 account.

Each of the following port ranges were translated to the same ranges:
TCP 1720-1720
UDP 5000-5100
TCP 30000-30000

What have I left out of the configuration?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GMail Talk And Video - Gtalk ?

Sep 5, 2010

I'm running 9.04, and wanted to use GMail's talk and video features. Registered with Gmail, and had to install a deb called google-talkplugin_current_i386.deb , and after installation, Gmail appeared as if it was ready/ok for a chat, talk or video.

Then I noticed the .deb was not shown under Synaptic, as a 'standard' deb, so in the interests of some 3rd party software NOT running on the computer, uninstalled it.

Went looking in Synaptic, and it does have a 'gtalk'. Is that all that is required, to run talk or video under a web browser, after logging into my GMail account ? Or, should I use Empathy ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Create My Own Internet Talk Show ?

Oct 12, 2010

I would like to start a streaming audio/talk radio show where I can play music during breaks, talk most of the time about current events, and MAYBE even take callers.

I am now using Blogtalkradio, but the streaming and archiving quality os so terrible that I want to move up into creating my own talk show network.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04, 64 bit

This is a good example of what I would like to do: The Global Reality Show...the guy uses Sam Broadcaster and pays a "stream bill" due every month, and you can download archives from a server linked to his website or click the application buttons for ways to get his stream:[url]

Now I heard of this thing called IDJC, which I have installed, but I do not have the faintest idea of how to use it, let alone get jackd running properly. It just complains and stops. Nor have I EVER used Sam Broadcaster or anything like it. When it comes to this thing, I'm a complete newbie. Other people on other forums say you can use Shoutcast and VLC and bypass Jackd and IDJC completely.

How to set up your own internet radio station in Linux? I understand its alot more complicated than windows.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cheese Too Slow To Use?

Nov 15, 2010

I just tried Cheese on my netbook after upgrading to 10.10. And is barely functional, since it's too slow. I know a netbook is not very fast, but it should be fast enough for this.

Is there any settings or anything that might fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cheese Can't Detect Webcam?

Feb 3, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop with a built-in webcam. I installed Cheese months ago and it worked fine then -- pics, videos, the works.

Now, after some updates recommended by Canonical, Cheese is telling me that it can't find the webcam. I tried dumping it an reinstalling, but to no avail.

Anyone out there know what's going on? Did the updates knock out a hardware driver?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Capturing Video With Cheese Does Not Work

Sep 2, 2010

I've been trying for a while now to capture videos with my webcam of my samsung n110 netbook, I am running ubuntu 10.4 and cheese 2.30.1. I can take pictures fine, with effects and everything but when I press "start recording" the webcam seems to turn off or all I see is a black image, then when I press stop recording the camera picture comes back on and then the program freezes. I've tried turning down the resolution, I've tried all the possibilities in gstreamer-properties but nothing helped so far running from terminal didn't give me a clue on what the problem might be either. I would like cheese to work to have photo and video in one program but if someone has a good program to capture video I am willing to try it out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cheese Wont Show Webcam?

Jul 6, 2011

For some reason Cheese works for the 1st time when I launch the application fresh but after I use it and I close the application, the next time I go to use it, it doesn't show any video from my web cam. I can see the web cam turn on and it activates the flash LED however I don't see any video. I reboot my Ubuntu PC and it works fine the next time but I have to always reboot my PC and it sucks.
