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:
I have tried alsamixer -c 1, but that gives me the following error:
$ arecord -l
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 1: CameraB409241 [USB Camera-B4.09.24.1], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
If anyone has any idea at all that could help me, I will be very grateful!!
