    Webcam Incompatiblities.

    So ever since i installed Ubuntu I have never had any luck with my webcam working. Has anyone else ever had this issue? At first I thought it was just my netbook. I tried Ubuntu 11.04, 11.10, and now on 10.10 same issue. So I picked up a separate webcam and micro phone. Other than picture quality is terrible I am still unable to record videos.

    This is the camera and mic I bought. I know they are weak it was just to test this issue out. I actually have a perfectly good webcam in my netbook LT27 Gateway Netbook.

    You webcam may be connected internally as a USB device - my built-in webcam in my Dell laptop is connected this way.

    So do "lsusb" too to see if your webcam shows up there, like mine does.

    Well it is showing up for pics. And very bad quality I may add. But the video is still acting the same.
