[jitsi-dev] Jitsi doesn't see the web camera linux


#1

Hi,

On OpenSuSE 11.4 x 64 and jitsi built 3570 rpm. doesn't get the web camera in the menu list. There is only unknown/generic /dev/video0 . Other applications see and use the camera as /dev/video1 (v4l2src device="/dev/video1") . Older builds used to see the camera and it was in the list as /dev/video1.

Second observation is that on audio calls jitsi uses lots of cpu power around 60% for xorg and 40% for java . The cpu I use is AMD dual core 4600+.

Thanks

Well, that's unexpected... How old are the "older builds" you've
mentioned? Could you pinpoint in which build number Jitsi stopped
seeing the camera? Additionally, please provide us with the output of
the v4l-info command (I'm not sure which OpenSuSE package contains
it).

Is that a second issue which has appeared in recent builds or you just
had it "forever"?
