hi,

I'm using UVCVIDEO driver from linux-uvc.berlios .de
The streamer command belong at xawtv (release 3.95) package, linux.bytesex. org/xawtv/.

Bye and thanks for help.

Hi,
now the webcam works, or better I think that it had always worked. Was the software like gnomemeeting that doesn't support v4l2 devices, with EKIGA all works. Now I read that xawtv is v4l2 compatible so I think that there is something about xawtv'sconfiguration.
