If I must buy a new webcam then so be it. BUT ir did work perfectly
well with Skype, both before and after the change to use pulse audio.
And when I say 'work' I'm talking about Wheezy 64bit.

In that case, surely this webcam must show up under lsusb and be "green-ticked" under the UVC webcam drivers list?

Once you have the webcam's ID code you can search for a solution in Debian 64 bit.

Switch off the PC, make sure the webcam is plugged in and reboot.

In terminal, as ordinary user (~$) NOT root, type lsusb

You should get something like this:

Code:
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 046d:081d Logitech, Inc. HD Webcam C510
Try different USB ports on your PC and make sure the webcam's USB connector is fully engaged.

I did as you suggested, but since lsusb is not to be found ...
Quote:
/home/beckwith $ lsusb
bash: lsusb: command not found
The webcam works, it's the mic in it that doesn't

Hmmm, I would thought usblibs should have been installed already

So now I know the webcam model number.
As I said, the camera works, it is the mic that doesn't.
I tried my old Microsoft webcam - - it was even worse, no picture
nor and sound. It used to work but too tall to sit on top my
monitor, so a bought the slimmer LOchitech C210. I tried Another
Microsoft webcam that I inherited from my late father, it too
totally fails.
I'm thinking of buying a Logitech c920 - supposed to work on
Linux, but I doubt it - not until I have an explanation why
the c210 worked for two years on Mepis 12 (Wheezy), and doesn't
work on Debian 7.8.0.

Don't even think about trying to get a Microsoft “Lifeless” webcam working in Linux!

Either sell it to a Windows user or use a large hammer.

ID 046d:0819 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C210 is listed as working under the UVC webcam drivers list.

You have vision but no sound.

There is no reason to buy a C920 because you are probably only going to have a similar sound problem with that.

Maybe somebody else can chip in and assist with getting the sound working.

beckwith,

You will attract more helpers with the with the C210 sound problem if you start a new thread.

Posts #5 and #6 may help:

Odds-on that pulseaudio is the problem.
