I'm using Xubuntu 12.10.
My webcam is a Microsoft Lifecam HD (ID 045e:075d Microsoft Corp. LifeCam Cinema). It has a good integrated usb audio device.
On Ubuntu 12.04 the webcam was working perfectly with Cheese. Recording video (using the usb audio) was ok.
After the upgrade to Xubuntu 12.10, I had various problems.
I know that the new Cheese has some bug. So I tried Guvcview, Kamoso and wxCam. All of these can record video, but not if I set the USB audio; Guvcview causes a crash/freeze (need reboot), Kamoso sometimes does not record and wxCam records a video with the audio out of sync.
My questions are:
1) Is it possible to downgrade cheese (to the version used on ubuntu 12.04 LTS) ?
2) Are there some other application to record webcam videos?
Thanks in advance (and sorry for my english),
