    The microphone on a webcam does not work

    Hi,

    Anybody has any idea about how to use the integrated microphone on a webcam to have the online meeting in Ubuntu? I recently bought a webcam with microphone for online meeting. It works well on my Windows computer, but when I use it on Ubuntu 20.04, the camera works but the mic does work. The system can detect there is an audio input hardware, but there's no sound.
    Is there any driver needed for a plug and play webcam&mic?

    Welcome.

    Unfortunately there is no driver. Those things work with the generic USB audio driver that has been around for donkey's years or they don't.

    Use the internal microphone instead or in its absence just connect a cheap microphone or headsets.
