I am using Jitsi version 2.3.20131229 (build from AUR) on a x86_46 Manjaro
Linux. Unfortunately, I am also experiencing the problem that I get a black
screen instead of a video from the webcam most of the time. Only a few times
Jitsi successfully displayed the webcam picture. This affects webcam preview as
well as video calls. Jitsi didn't display any suspicious debug messages or log
entries (see jitsi0.log.1 in the appendix) out of the box. When launching
Jitsi with LD_PRELOAD set to the path of v4l2compat.so there is an error
message (see jitsi0.log.0). Do you have any suggestions what could be the
cause of this problem?
In hope that it will be helpful, I also put the output of the v4l2-compliance
tool into the appendix (see v4l2.txt).
In my opinion, Jitsi is becoming a great alternative to Skype! So if I can
somehow help you, please let me know. I wish you all the best for year
