    PS Eye Ubuntu 10.10

    Hi All!

    Ok, so I want to get my PS3 Eyetoy working as a webcam on my Ubuntu box for use with Skype etc. When plugged in, the camera portion works fine and is recognised immediately. However, I am unable to get the microphone working. It appears to be recognised, but there isn't anything captured from it.

    I have removed PulseAudio as it was interfering with my quest to get 5.1 working over HDMI passthrough in XBMC.

    I did have it working briefly, but I must have changed something, and now I cannot get it to work for love, nor money!

    This is what my system finds:
    Code:
    $ arecord -l
    **** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
    card 1: CameraB409241 [USB Camera-B4.09.24.1], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    I have tried alsamixer -c 1, but that gives me the following error:
    Code:
    cannot load mixer controls: Invalid argumen
    If anyone has any idea at all that could help me, I will be very grateful!!

    If you run Sound Preferences, and click on the "input" tab, do you have mutiple choices?

    Hi,

    Sound preferences no longer works, which I am assuming is because I have removed PulseAudio. I can select the correct device in gstreamer-properties, but when I do a test, no sound is picked up.

    Finally got this working! I added the following:

    CARDINFO{driver}=="USB-Audio", INCLUDE="usb", GOTO="init_end"
    To /usr/share/alsa/init/00main in the section that is '# real ALSA configuration database'

    Hope this helps someone
