Re: easycap video adapter

I have downloaded the stk driver and when trying to install the driver  I get this error.

Can you help please.

I have an easycap video adapter. When plugged on linux, the system
detects it but I am still not able ti use it (with cheese or mogulus).
when I di lsusb, I get this entry.

[adel localhost ~]$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05e1:0408 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd

Can you help please?

Nowadays there is no easy way to make it work. There is a driver in development for Syntek webcams [1], and a patch to do this driver work with the EasyCap video adapter [2]. In [3] you can find instructions to make it work (in Ubuntu and in Spanish, but it is better than nothing).

For me it works, although I am still trying to capture video and audio at once with mencoder (I get a strange floating point exception), because gstreamer is a little slower in that task. Whatever I can help, you got my email.
