Thread: Microdia Webcam 0c45:608f works!

  1. #1

    Default Microdia Webcam 0c45:608f works!

    I have an old crappy usb webcam + mic:
    Code:
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0c45:608f Microdia PC Camera (SN9C103 + OV7630)
    On OpenSuse 11.4 32bit, the mic worked out of the box, but there was no video. Following are the steps to make it work.

    1. Install v4l-tools:
    Code:
    sudo zypper install v4l-tools
    2. Try launching Cheese with the following command to check if it works:
    Code:
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so cheese
    3. If the video is upside down (it was for me)
    Code:
    export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so cheese
    4. Create a custom launcher for cheese:
    sudo nano /usr/bin/cheese-launcher

    ...and copy/paste the two lines from above

    cheese-launcher
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so cheese
    ... make it executable:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/cheese-launcher

    5. Control Center -> Main Menu, edit the launcher for cheese and change the command from 'cheese' to 'cheese-launcher'.
