Webcam


Whenever i try to go on to chatroullete or another site that uses a webcam, they ask me if its okay to use my webcam. I try to click yes but it wont let me, it freezes the screen. I can still go to different tabs but not the screen with the option on it. I tryed to do it again but it did the same thing. Can someone please help me!!

Hi!
We should know some detail about your hardware and which program you use (Skype?)
Are you familiar with Terminal / Konsole?

Hi!
Most web cams are displayed by "lsusb". Please first try Terminal
Code:
lsusb
If recognized you will see - among others - something like:
Code:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0c45:63f1 Microdia Integrated Webcam
Please post the output by using "#" - copy and paste it between the pair of [] brackets.

Edit:
ls like list

- Some info about webcams in Ubuntu - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam
- As for me, Logitech c210 works nice at least in 11.04, I think in other versions it'll also work well.
Code:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:0819 Logitech, Inc.
- "Cheese" is a nice application to try your webcam

Hi!
Web cams - as other devices - are e.g. identified by a pair of hexnumbers like
0c45:63f1 - first 4 digits: vendor, last 4: device.
Afterwards you can search - with your numbers of course - e.g. with Google or in Ubuntu-forums.
Another possibility: Terminal
Code:
dmesg | grep uvc
My output:
Code:
[   20.702682] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Integrated_Webcam_2M (0c45:63f1)
[   20.710947] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
