    Lightbulb Re: How do i test my webcam without using cheese?

    install
    Code:
    ffmpeg
    , i use it like this to record from my inbuilt laptop webcam with this command , which outputs the recorded file to the /tmp folder ( *note you will not be able to view the output in realtime unlike with cheese )

    Code:
    ffmpeg  -sameq -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 -pix_fmt rgba -y  /tmp/out.mpg
    or try command
    Code:
    gstreamer-properties
    and under the video tab choose your webcam and press the test button.

    IF you have VLC
    plug the cam into the usb port...if not built in then
    at terminal...input


    vlc v412:///dev/video0

    its that simple.

    Try installing "guvcview" from the Ubuntu Software Center. Make sure your webcam is turned on after you install..........Cheers....

    Try installing "guvcview" from the Ubuntu Software Center. Make sure you webcam is turned on after install. The webcam icon will appear on your apps bar once installed. Just click on it.....cheers.
