My webcam is working (again)!

December 11, 2005

A capture from the webcamMy webcam is finally working with Fedora Core 3. Thanks to Luc Saillard’s page on Philips USB Webcam Driver for Linux, I was able to download and put a new module for my webcam (a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000). I first tested it with GnomeMeeting and it worked fine. Thanks to camE, I was able to take this snapshot (and get rid of any unnecessary GUI ; snapshot is a reduced version of what I get).

Now, two things:

  1. I was able to use my webcam “out-of-the-box” with one update of my Fedora Core 3. I don’t know what went wrong but, when I re-installed it, everything was broken. So, now, I know how to do it.
  2. You won’t see a kitch webpage with my webcam refreshed every 30 seconds. But I’ll try to do useful things like monitoring what’s happening in my lab, etc..
