Thread: Intel Easy PC Camera garbled video

  1. #1

    Default Intel Easy PC Camera garbled video

    I have an Intel Easy PC camera, i am using openSUSE 11.1, i enabled the webcam repo, my system is using the gspca driver

    lsmod output:

    lsmod | grep gspca
    gspca_spca508 9348 0
    gspca_main 19976 1 gspca_spca508
    videodev 31236 1 gspca_main
    usbcore 165892 5 gspca_spca508,gspca_main,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

    lsusb output:

    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 8086:0110 Intel Corp. Easy PC Camera

    Yet the video is garbled and doesn't really work. Funny thing is that i had it working before with the oldest kernel, i remember that it has something to do with v4l to v4l2 conversion but right now all i have is garbled text.

    Does anyone know how could i fix it?

    If anyone would be interested i solved by invoking skype like that:

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype

    OR

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

    (it is letter L in there not 1 )

    I suppose if you have problems with other apps using camera this should also work.

    P.S. Now i need someone to help me because i have weird bluish color
