My system does recognize the camera however when I try to use app like GnomeMeeting I get following error message:
"pwc Video mode SIF@10 fps is only supported with the decompressor module (pwcx)."
I think if I would decrease SIF to 10 from the current value it would work but:
1. I don't know what SIF is
2. I don't know how to lower the value in GnomeMeeting
thanks for any input.
Quoted from the /usr/src/linux/Documentation/usb/philips.txt file:
"When you load the module you can set some default settings for the camera; some programs depend on a particular image-size or -format and don't know how to set it properly in the driver. The options are:
Can be one of 'sqcif', 'qsif', 'qcif', 'sif', 'cif' or
'vga', for an image size of resp. 128x96, 160x120, 176x144,
320x240, 352x288 and 640x480 (of course, only for those cameras that support these resolutions). "
Also, you'll need the pwcx decompressor module for a larger image size. You can get that at:
I think the above link is discontinuing support for the pwcx driver. The URL listed below may have picked up on it. I haven't test it myself:
