Thread: Skype cannot find my new webcam!

  1. #1

    Default Skype cannot find my new webcam!

    I just got a Logitech c210 webcam, as from what I gathered this UVC cam/microphone device works with Linux ...

    However ... skype can't seem to see my webcam when it's connected, even though it appears to be configured when plugged in, as the following output from dmesg shows:

    [20227.480098] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
    [20227.741045] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0819
    [20227.741051] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=2
    [20227.741055] usb 2-1: SerialNumber: 68C623D0
    [20227.741493] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:0819)
    [20227.842630] input: UVC Camera (046d:0819) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb2/2-1/2-1:1.0/input/input17
    Can somebody tell me what might be going wrong here, and how I might fix it?

    EDIT: webkam seems to have no trouble utilizing it, thus this is clearly an issue with skype.
