I recently plugged in my Canyon Webcam and opened it with Cheese. The camera indeed initializes, but the video screen shows only a strange image of a half dark blue screen and half the camera image in very light blue. The camera isn't stuck. I've tested it with two cameras of the same type.

I've tried some solutions on the internet, but most of them are for older versions than 10.4. I've also tried using the "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so cheese", but it seems the drivers are working. Does anyone know if this camera should work with the libv4l drivers?

Interesting detail. If I adjust the resolution in cheese I got the same screen but in red.

Can anyone help?
