Thread: Cheese error

  1. #1

    Default Cheese error

    When I start Cheese, I get an error "There was an error playing video from the webcam" and the application displays a blank screen. When I start Cheese from a terminal, I get the following error output.
    Code:
    tim@linux-63re:~> cheese

    Can anyone tell me how to fix it? Cheese was working until I installed multimedia codecs and restricted extras. I assume that I have installed something that conflicts?

    Thanks!

    Hi
    Do you see any output from;
    Code:
    gst-inspect-1.0 |grep encodebin
    You should have two packages installed;
    Code:
    zypper se -i gstream*plugins-base
    
    gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base
    gstreamer-plugins-base

    Code:
    gst-inspect-1.0 |grep encodebin
    This gives no output

    Code:
    zypper se -i gstream*plugins-base
    
    gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base
    gstreamer-plugins-base
    I have the latest versions of these installed as well.

    I reckon that I broke something when installing multimedia and restricted codecs, as this made changes to gstreamer, but I can't be sure. All I know is that Cheese worked after a fresh install.

    How did you install the restricted extras? What guide did you follow (if
    any)?

    The one I used was this:

    I have this very same problem which arose in exactly same circumstances - on a fresh opensuse 13.1 installation Cheese worked well, then I installed multimedia codecs from here - 1-click-collection - openSUSE Community Wiki - and Cheese "broke up" and returns the above mentioned error. The packages suggested by malcolmlewis are all installed.

    Any ways to fix this?

    it seems to me the codecs from 1click collection pull in a earlier version of gstreamer and other stuff which causes a total mess in dependencies and breaks Cheese too.

    Hi
    You might want to follow that one up with the packman folks?

    I switched all the gstreamer packages to packman and cheese is working.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    This solved the issue for me, too. Thanks.
