    Re: How to enable integrated webcam?

    I tried using the command gstreamer-properties which did bring up the settings window. However, when I tried to make the necessary changes I got the following error in the screenshot attached.

    I also got the following code in Terminal when I type in the gstreamer command
    Code:
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'artsdsink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdsink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'glimagesink'

    Any ideas what's happening? I'm using a Targa Traveller 1534 laptop with built in webcam.
