Title: WEBCAM UVC does not display video
Post by: fabrijz on October 13, 2010, 08:30:00 PM
So i understand kernels from 2.26 up support UVC cameras, i have a vimicro  VC0338 working on ubuntu 10.4 with kernel 2.31 running on an eMachines┬« EZ Series all-in-one desktop and everytime i open any video capture software the camera turns on but i see no video, just a black screen, if i use it on skype it turns on and skype seems to recognize it and does everything the program is supoused to when theres a camera but again i have a black screen

I tried updating uvc module like it says here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UVC, but it tells me that i have the updated version of it..

Do you guys have Any ideas to get the video actually runing? thanks in advance
