Green webcam capture - gstreamer settings not "sticking"
Last modified: 2009-09-19 09:46:41 EDT
Description of problem:
gstreamer is using the wrong default settings for video input when using an iSight camera on a MacBook (tested on MacBook 4,1 but reported on other MacBook models too - see ubuntu bug). This results in a green image displayed from the webcam.
Additionally, when selecting "custom" settings in gstreamer-properties and correcting the issue the settings do not "stick" and are not read by applications that use gstreamer.
This also happened exactly the same in F10.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a MacBook with iSight camera installed run "gstreamer-properties"
2. For "Video Input" select v4l2 plugin and built-in isight device.
3. Press Test (or run "cheese" or any other app that uses gstreamer for webcam)
The gstreamer-properties "Test" works just fine if you select "Custom" plugin under "Video Input" and use the following pipeline:
v4l2src device="/dev/video0" ! videoscale
However, when you close gstreamer-properties and reopen it, the "Custom" settings do not stick, and applications such as "Cheese" that use gstreamer do not pick up or use the custom settings.
Please let me know if I can provide more info.
This appears to be fixed, in cheese at least. Changing status to CLOSED CURRENTRELEASE.
