View Full Version : [ubuntu] Logitech QuickCam Messenger problem

August 31st, 2008, 05:25 PM
Hi all,
I have a Logitech QuickCam Messenger (046d:08f0) webcam, but there is a problem. In Xawtv all works great (all shown as it must be), but in Skype colors are messed, same problem in Camorama (can be fixed by Color Correction filter).
What did I do: installed driver from http://home.mag.cx/messenger/, then installed gstfakevideo.
Anyone had the same color problem? :confused:
P. S. First image - Xawtv, second image - camorama (without any filters)

IT looks like Skype and Camorama are using a different device, do you have a tv tuner card installed too?

I can't get any image directly from camera using Skype. So I'm using GStreamer Fake Video.
Camorama gets image directly from camera. But the problem is same.
If in Camorama I can use Color Correction, is there any way to fix it in Skype?

do you have a tv tuner card installed too?
No TV tuners are installed.
