I have not been able to find a simple program to capture audio/video from a usb webam. I’m running SuSE 11.1 with updates and am using a Logtech QuckCam for Notebooks. The camera works fine both audio and video.
The best I could find, on pacman, was wxcam. It doesn’t work for 11.1 even with the widgets installed. Seemed like it would have done the job if it worked.
Anybody know of a simple program or …, that can capture audo and video from a usb webcam?
I have used Cheese but haven’t tried the video function, just photos. Thus, I don’t know how the app work with audio. You could of course try Cinelerra which isn’t simple, but not to hard if you just want to capture a sequence of video. Possibly, you might use Kino or another more simpler video editor programme as well, Kdenlive maybe.
The features I’m looking for from the webcam capture is video and audio. Sigh, all other platforms have such capture programs. And after using linux for 15 years not to find something like that now is…
I’ll give wxcam another try. And if anyone has any other possibilities, please let me know. In my search I found many others who were asking this same thing.
I found those after 5 minutes of surfing …
Just how hard did you surf for this ?
In truth, it surprises me when you state "And after using linux for 15 years not to find something like that now is… " … Or did you try both those methods and they did not work . … and you decided to leave it up to us to ask you if you tried it ???
Either way, I’m puzzled. Best I can say is “have faith and try harder”.
I have always found that is a good way to find out what is missing and which needs to be added to sys.
Yes, I just tried that, the configure went ok, and the make craped out with something not found, gee, can’t remember closed it down after looking all over, web and pacman, etc. Just turned my head off, when I got a video call on skype.
