I have been attempting to get some older webcams functioning in PCLOS 2010 to pass on to some who want to use them ...... probably for Skype.
So first I try to get the cams working in some other video app ...... but no ..... not working properly ......
So here is the first one, I will list others as I get the info ........
Vendor: Logitech, Inc.
Bus PCI #: 1
PCI device #: 7
Vendor ID: 0x046d
Device ID: 0x08f6
Neither Cheese, WxCam, not Camorama will show any output ..... various faults.
VLC seems to be trying .... it 'plays' from the cam but there is no video .... but at least it does not error out.
I can record the audio from the cam MIC and adjust the volume etc in Pulse Vol Control.
There the cam is noted as a QuickCam Messenger Plus
The info from VLC is as per pic.
It is causing me to wonder if the driver module is working correctly.
Is there anyone using this driver module successfully?
If yes what are the camera details please? ..... vendor:device numbers
