View Full Version : [ubuntu] Webcam not working with opencv.

August 22nd, 2009, 07:18 PM
I have a webcam which I have connected to my computer device ID:
ID 093a:2460 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Q-TEC WEBCAM 100

When I try to run opencv with it, the "lkdemo" sample or a simple streaming code,
It gives the error "Could not initialize capturing..."

When I checked for the webcam with cheese it worked but the image quality was very poor.

It works perfectly fine with with the integrated laptop webcam.

I'm running open cv on ubuntu 9.04

Please tell me what the problem might be....

Thank you in anticipation.
