Jump to: navigation, search


The VLC section recommends v4l:// to view and record from the webcam. This produces errors unless v4l2:// is used. says V4L1 support was dropped in kernel 2.6.38. Should this be changed or additional information included to the wiki? Corburn 16:02, 5 March 2012 (EST)

Definitely, please just update the article, there's no need to keep outdated information. If you want you can also spend a few words about the deprecation of v4l in favour of v4l2. -- Kynikos 05:19, 6 March 2012 (EST)

Image preprocessing

Any programs with configuration to make a dark image/detect broken pixels and set up preprocessing to help against it?(preferably in the configuration) I guess it is a bit of an 'advanced' feature.

Note: xawtv still freezes the system for me even after adding /etc/modprobe.d/uvcvideo.conf (Other programs work)Jasper1984 (talk) 13:41, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
