Re: Skype and video[Was:Webcam recommendations?]



Hello,
I had the same problem with my webcam and I resolved following this guide (http://moinejf.free.fr/gspca_README.txt):
V4L library

Most applications don't know how to decode the raw frames generated
by the webcams, and also, many of them do not speak the V4L2
interface. To make them work, you need the V4L application
library found at:

http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hgoede/v4l-dvb

To generate:
cd v4l2-apps/lib/libv4l/
make
(and as root)
make install
(the installation is done under /usr/local)

To use it with a mono-threaded application, do:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so <application>

To use it with a multi-threaded application, do:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
<application>

For more information, look at:

Cheers,
Fab

I ran the same version of skype on my laptop running F10 and my webcam and sound worked fine.  Here's the webcam info

Bus 001 Device 010: ID 046d:09a2 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Communicate Deluxe/S7500

I had to play around with the sound devices configuration in the skype options  to get sound to work.  Some sound settings in skype would indicate sound was working but I was unable to make a test call.  I finally got past that and was able to make a test call and had my webcam displaying.

Hope this helps

Paolo

Hi all,

I'm using Skype 2.0.0.72 and I have a Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks,
as reported by lsusb:

idVendor           0x046d Logitech, Inc.
idProduct          0x08dd QuickCam for Notebooks
bcdDevice            1.00

With this version of Skype, I'm able to see other people doing video
conference (better quality with compiz disabled), but I can't get the
webcam working. In Options->Video, the webcam is detected, but when I
push the "Test" button, all I get is this:

Starting the process...
Skype Xv: Xv ports available: 4
Skype XShm: XShm support enabled
Skype Xv: Using Xv port 131
<Here Skype closes and I get the command prompt again>

Nothing catches my eye in the system log. I tried to install
libv4l.i386 but it didn't make any difference.

Any success cases? Any hints on how to solve this?
