[jitsi-users] Plug&Play Webcam on Debian Wheezy


#1

I use Jitsi nightly on Debian Wheezy.

Unfortunately plugging in my webcam after start jitsi does not work. Jitsi does not detect the new video device and does not switch to the new Pulseaudio input device. I do not get a notification of a new device configuration by Jitsi, either. This is logged to stdout by jitsi after plugging in the cam:

Plugging in the cam before starting jitsi works fine. Whats wrong?
