I completely forgot where I got that tarball, but I have it saved locally. Does anyone know a good place to upload it where it would be convenient? It's 3.57 megs, so I can't attach it here.

Running gstreamer-properties and selecting the actual device on the Video tab seems to have fixed cheese. camorama and several flash-based websites still do not work, though some flash websites do.
I also downloaded the latest flash10 pluguin alpha from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html . Unpacking the libflashplayer-10.0.d21.1.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz gets you a libflashplayer.so. Quit your browser and copy the libflashplayer.so over all instances on your system to update.
I enabled the proposed repository today to take care of a bug that is likely to shorten the lives of laptop hard disks. The new repo included a newer rev of Cheese, which fixed everything. Photos are captured and videos record at all resolutions. The live display only refreshes once every 750ms or so, but video records properly in sync. To add the 'proposed' repo, add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list and run Update Manager.
Code:deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-proposed restricted main multiverse universe
i just try the cheese included in the proposed repo but still not working at my laptop

This bug was addressed by a new version of cheese and V4L by way of updates in intrepid. This works OK now. If this is solved for the thread starter. can you please put [solved] and mod needs to close this thread ?
