View Full Version : [ubuntu] Blank webcam on Karmic Koala

November 4th, 2009, 10:40 AM
Hello, I am using Karmic Koala on a Amilo Xi laptop.

My webcam is TVT-ACM378 (T-Visto.com) with empia chip.

The thing is that It is correctly detected by Ubuntu, in principle it is show in lsusb as :
Bus 001 Device 007: ID eb1a:2710 eMPIA Technology, Inc. SilverCrest Webcam

But then, If i try to use it in skype I get a blank screen. Skype doesn't tell any error, it detects the webcam and works as if it received a real image, but it is completly blank.

It doesn't work either in another software like cheese.

Any ideas about this webcam ?
