It would be helpful to know the chipset the camera uses, I didn't see anything in that device list that stands out as an identifiable webcam. Try posting the output of lsusb, or if you are still running Windows, you may be able to find out in the Device Manager.

It looks like your camera is made by Suyin, some of these cameras are known to work with the uvc driver.

Unhappy Webcam Drivers on HP Laptop for Fedora 8

Hi,
I have managed to download the source from http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/#download and compile them for my kernel. Now the webcam is getting detected as "HP Webcam" but unfortunately i am not able to view the video output as the applications are crashing ( i have tried wsnap & camstream) both of them are crashing.

Pls advise. Below is the output from /var/log/dmesg file


cat /var/log/dmesg | grep HP

uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device HP Webcam (064e:a110)

Smile Webcam Drivers on HP Laptop for Fedora 8

Hi,
I am able to view my webcam with aMSN 0.97RC1 version.

Before that I have tried the latest luvcview-20070512.tar.gz & it doesn't work

but atleast the aMSN's Cam Shooter plug-in version 0.2 works


will try and find out if there's a standalone version of Cam Shooter is available



cheers,

Vikram

Thumbs up Webcam Drivers on HP Laptop for Fedora 8

Try installing uvc drivers from the below link

http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/#download

after which install aMSN , it has got a cam shooter plug-in , which will help you to take pictures using webcam. I don't remember the standalone camshooter name, but will dig it up for you.


Regards,
Vikram
