[jitsi-dev] Philips Webcam doesn't work


#1

Hi,

today I tried to connect my Philips Webcam to a newly installed machine (actually not a new one but hopefully strong enough to talk)

Unfortunately the camera shows a blank image only in the Video settings. There is an error strange message in the /var/log/syslog which appears when starting Jitsi:

Feb 26 23:36:41 andreas kernel: [ 237.859344] 2:2:1: endpoint lacks sample rate attribute bit, cannot set.

Please see the attached logs.

What's wrong?

Does the webcam work with other software such as Cheese Webcam Booth?
