[jitsi-users] Web Cam is not available :(


#1

Hi guys,

I have quite old notebook but it was upgraded by max RAM and I just like it.
Just because it's old there is not embedded web cam there. And I plug
USB sphere with eye.
And big disatisfaction was when I saw webcam is visible by OS (WinXP
SP3) and Skype but Jitsi (last stable build) says me /no device/ :(.

In the log I search strings (sorry there are some words in Russian
there just because my OS is localized):
17:58:46.937 INFO: impl.neomedia.device.DirectShowAuto.<init>().45
Start detecting DirectShow capture devices
17:58:46.984 WARNING: impl.neomedia.device.DirectShowAuto.<init>().72

17:58:47.062 INFO:

Why could it be? How to detect which video format Jitst wants to have?

Regards,
Kirill

Hi Kirill,

Can you send us exact name and the brand (Logitech, Microsoft, ...) of your webcam.

The video format that Jitsi supports for Windows are:
- RGB24;
- RGB32;
- ARGB32;
- YUY2;
- UYVY;
- NV12;
- Y411;
- Y41P;
- I420.

Regards,
