    PS3 EYE Webcam Driver

    Is there a Playstation 3 EYE webcam driver for ubuntu? I know there is one for win 7 as i used it before, but i wasnt able to find one for Ubuntu.

    Plus, if there happens to be one, does it come with some basic tools or are there sum i can download? such as vid effects.

    Check out Cheese, its a web camera recording tool with some basic effects. If it works in Linux then it should show up in Cheese automatically.

    i've been wondering the same thing. I know the ps2 eye toy "just works" with cheese.

    and yes, cheese is a program and has some neat functions.

    There is no driver like you'd get for Windows, it will either work or it won't depending on if the device is designed to work with the video capture API in Linux.

    Search around to see if someone already has one working or just plug one into a system to find out. It should work with the live disc if you just need to test without installing Ubuntu.

    It doesn't work out of the box because it uses proprietary drivers. The PlayStation website still maintains it only works with the PlayStation .

    I haven't tried it yet, but this looks hopeful:

    Video currently works out of the box. Sound can be a little more dodgy but this guide seems to fix it:

    (only requires running two commands, nothing needs installing)
