Ubuntu :: Skype Rendering - Image From My Webcam Is Clear But The Video From The Person On The Other End Is Messed Up
Feb 13, 2011
whenever I video chat with someone the image from my webcam is clear but the video from the person on the other end is messed up. It is as if it does not render correctly, it's washed out and it looks like a full image and 2 cut off images, one on the bottom and one the top of the full image. Has anyone else encountered this? The PC has a Radeon 9800 Pro AGP card with the ATI drivers installed. Other video plays fine, ....., dvd, avi and mkvs.
I am trying to use the video calls with skype. The person can see me but I cant see them or myself on the video call box. I have tried the download version from skype and inside my ubuntu software center and each had the same problem.
I am new to this and I recently switched to Ubuntu on my laptop it is a lenovo thinkpad R61 it has in intel centrino chip and i can't get the mic to go through to the other person. i can hear them just fine and i can hear myself through my speakers but the other person can not hear me. I don't really know much about Ubuntu so I will give you any info you ask for as long as you can tell me how to get the info.
I downloaded an FLV video and placed an extra MP3 file over it. Two files. Total: 30 MBI experimented with about seven rendering containers, and QuickTime renderer was the only rendering container that didn't result in sped-up/compressed video or correct rendering for just fifteen seconds.How in the name of all that is holy did this rendering end up with 570 extra MB?
I am working on an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop. Installed UE 2.7. Need Skype working. Webcam works fine. Audio works fine. When I connect to a video call, the person I am calling can hear and see me, but while I can hear them, I can't see them.
I run skype, I have to connect/disconnect at least 3 times for the other person to be able to hear me , not see, just hear. and very often during this process skype crashes. and the video quality is just terrible compared to when i use to run skype on windows from the same machine. I ran skype from the terminal and im just wondering what all this output means
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and would like to use WebCamStudio with Skype 2.1 beta for ubuntu 32 bit. I though skype displays WebCamStudio as one of the webcams its not able to stream output of WebCamStudio to other person...
I have installed Skype 2.1 (Beta) in linuxmint Julia, now when I am communicating with anyone or video conferencing, I am able to hear the other person but the other person is unable to hear my voice, I talked with someone else who is facing the same problem in Ubuntu.
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.
Ive been having issues with skype, stalling, aborting or whatever, pictures is messed up and microphone cuts up, if i end the call and try to call back it does nothing. Keep in mind that I dont know much about Linux. I ran skype from the terminal and it gives the following output: Quote: X Error, request 42, minor 0, error code 8 BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) I run Ubuntu 10, 64 bit on AMD Turion X2 with an ATI RADEON card. I dont know how to fix it or what's causing this.
I am completely new to Ubuntu and so far am pretty happy. I am running into an issue playing web videos, ..... (flash) as well as html5. What is happening is that the CPU is doing all the work instead of the GPU causing the video to skip/stutter, here are the system specs.
I have Compiz Config Settings Manager installed on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine. All the effects are working properly and everything is running fine. However when i play video with VLC Media Player, i would only get audio and no video. After looking this up i changed the output to X11 vidoe Output. I started getting video and audio. But when i switch to fullscreen mode the fullscreen video window is rendered by Compiz and thus has all of those window effects like wobbly, minimize, maximize and stuff are also applied to the full screen video. It also does not have all those controls that vlc normally shows when you wiggle your mouse in full-screen mode. I tried disabling the Video Playback option from the CCSM window, but to no avail.
The same thing also happens for the full screen view of Google Chrome. And the only way to leave full screen is to press F11 again. In this case the tab stacking area which drops down doesn't appear at all, also the exit full screen option which too drops down also does not appear. It seems Compiz is blocking all of those interactive buttons like the floating control panel in VLC and Tab stacking area in Chrome.
video playback is like I have applied a blueish sepia filter over it. And this is just the playback from totem player or mplayer, and not the playback from ..... (and generally online streaming) - this works just fine. this messy video playback also appears when I use cheese to capture video with my webcam. Note that the preview picture of the video file on nautilus has the natural colours it should have.
at first when I installed the os this particular problem didn't exist, but it came up the time I decided to follow the "comprehensive multimedia guide". So now I have all the pros of following the guide, but this is a major con...
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 planning on setting up a server cluster specifically for 3D video rendering. In order to maximize speed I wanna use OpenGL hardware acceleration for that and I'm pretty sure that I have to use an NVIDIA video card if I want the whole thing working reliably. Will I be able to start an X-Server with GLX on an NVIDIA video card that doesn't have a monitor connected to it? And what will be the maximum "virtual" display resolution that I can use?
Since I wanna have several servers running side-by-side I really don't have the room for any monitors.Just to avoid misunderstandings: It is not my intention to show what's being rendered to anyone in real time. I will only create video files that can be downloaded later. I'm already pretty sure that this will work, probably using "CustomEDID" or something like that, but I don't have a suitable setup available to test it right now.
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 188.8.131.52. 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 184.108.40.206The 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.
