    Re: Howto Get Eyetoy Webcam working for Ubuntu

    I'm trying to install my PS2 Eyetoy as a webcam

    I have no problem up until the part where it tells me to
    Code:
    sudo modprobe i2c_core
    After which it tells me:

    Code:
    FATAL: Module i2c_core not found.
    Any ideas? Any help would be wonderful.

    Re: Howto Get Eyetoy Webcam working for Ubuntu

    update: just tried my eyetoy (in case it matters, it's the silver edition) on a fresh install of ubuntu 9.04, and it worked right out of the box without any tweaking, recognized by cheese and by ekiga with no problems. only thing is that it has to be set to 640x480 resolution, the lower resolution shows some streaky lines in the output.

    hope this info helps someone.

    I just followed the bit about editing /~/.Skype/config.xml and now it works. YAY!

    Re: Howto Get Eyetoy Webcam working for Ubuntu

    So the Eyetoy works out of the box now, great but there is still a problem with the resolution being too high for programs like Skype and aMsn. Is there a way I can shrink the eyetoy's resolution to 320 x 240?

    --EDIT--
    Okay I answered my own question if anyone wants the solution. I used Webcam Studio. It lets you choose a large res cam for input and then outputs at lower res through a virtual webcam. Fairly easy to install:

    Sorry, I haven't done much testing with Skype.I installed and started Webcam Studio then I opened Skype and it's webcam options. I chose the virtual webcam yesterday and it crashed Skype. Today however it didn't crash. What exactly isn't working for you?

    I haven't tried it yet, wanted to know what to do first!

    I take it you just run Webcan Studio, set some options, then fire up Skype and choose a "virtual" webcam sources generated by Webcam Studio?

    That's pretty much it. On start up of Webcam studio a message should say that there is a virtual cam running if not Vloopback is either not running or you don't have permission to use it.

    You add the source Eyetoy then right click on it and choose "capture size" then the size you want it to input as. That's pretty much it.

    Hmmm

    Can get a picture in webcam studio but it is very slow, then when I try to run Skype and choose a video source, no sign of a virtual webcam and it just crashes closed (Skype).
