Thanks for your reply, but I still get this when I try to use my Sony digital camera has a web cam. [URL="http://i54.tinypic.com/28cfqpx.png im really stuck has what to do next if the file has downloaded and im not sure what programs are in ubuntu what I can use so I can use my camera has a web cam. is web cam application the only program or am I missing some thing.
Once you get it working, you can "sudo apt-get install cheese" to use with the webcam setup.
Cheese is a cheesy program to take pictures and videos from your web cam. The project also provides some graphical effects in order to please the users play instinct. Furthermore some integration work will be done to include it in some other programs and services.
Once you get it working, you can "sudo apt-get install cheese" to use with the web cam set-up.
Hi thanks for reply, but I have done as you have asked and tried to download that file "modprobe raw1394", I have put it in a screen shot to show you.http://i54.tinypic.com/1rt0ev.png but I still cant get it to work, but I did get cheese to download and work just fine but it doesn't recognize my camcorder and that's because I cant get the modprobe raw1394 file to work, but I could be wrong.?
I put in lsmod in to a terminal window and it doesn't show the modprobe file, so I take it it hasn't downloaded or worked.
Kind Regards DEX
