View Full Version : [ubuntu] wxcam problems

August 14th, 2010, 04:34 AM
I'm trying to record video off my webcam, and tried two different programs - cheese and wxcam.

I honestly didn't have much luck with cheese - it seemed to work fine, but when it came time to record video, the frame rate dropped to a ridiculous level, making the video completely unusable. I could wave my arm in front of the camera, and it might pick up one frame of that.

Moving on, I tried wxcam, which I like a lot.. however, when I record video with the xvid compression, they play back considerably faster than they were recorded. Any ideas on how to fix this?
