I have some roblems with build 2773 (Debian Squeeze 32-bit):
- My webcam doesnt work anymore in native v4l mode (it does work with civil though). It worked in 2772.
The webcam is: 0ac8:305b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. ZC0305 Webcam
It works with "mplayer tv:// tv=driver:v4l2" command, but i did post that already in previous discussions.
- I have PulseAudio installed, but it is not set as the default sound route - i created a pulse plug in ALSA for it. If i select this plug in the PortAudio device chooser, the sound works, but it is cracking all the time - and if i launch pavucontrol, the Sip Communicator's sound playback stream flickers and cannot be interacted with to set its volume. I have seen this in older builds.
Also the CPU usage jumps over 100% sometimes (in cases when i use the "pulse" plug; i cannot reproduce it consistently though) and stays there until i terminate the call. This issue was present in older builds.
And sometimes when changing the sound devices the program stops responding and it grabs mouse+keyboard focus from the X server and i have to kill it from tty1. This issue was present in older builds too.
Using the default plug the sound works, but it is not routed through PulseAudio (only ALSA) and prevents the PulseAudio server of playing any sounds (at least some apps) + i dont have the means to change its volume separately.
So does using java sound + launching Sip Communicator with padsp - in this case i can change its volume in pavucontrol, the sound hears just fine but it has a 0.5-1 sec lag probably because its long trip through Java Sound+PulseAudio.
In the previous builds (pre 2772 and 2772 had these issues for a lesser extent) sound worked fine through the pulse plug.
