Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 822091
cheese-3.4.2 can't record videos
Last modified: 2012-06-06 06:41:20 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a Z-Star 0ac8:c449 webcam in a Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 91z.
It is recognized by the kernel (Fed17beta TC5) at boot:
[ 9.453984] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Integrated Camera
[ 9.456016] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
The gstreamer-properties video test works perfectly.
But when I use Cheese to record a video it doesn't work and I get
the following warnings:
** (cheese:1539): WARNING **: Could not get buffers from device
** (cheese:1539): WARNING **: Could not map buffers from device
** (cheese:1539): WARNING **: Could not negotiate format
Taking pictures with cheese works OK.
Cheese-3.4.1 in Ubuntu-12.04 works perfectly with both pictures
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to record video with cheese
I have the exact same problem on a Lenovo Thinkpad T520
with a Chicony Electronics webcam 04f2:b217
Can you please go to the preferences menu of cheese and see if the photo resolution and video resolution are set differently? And if they are can you please make the video resolution match the photo resolution?
Also make sure you've no other video programs open while you are trying this.
Note this seems to be the same issue as bug 815581, so I'm going to mark this one as a duplicate. Please answer the question from comment #1 in a comment in 815581.
