comment Select pixelformat H264 for webcam in Chrome
Actually on some other machine, I first used VLC to set the camera to H.264 encoding and then started a Chromium browser capture. However, the setting is not kept. BUT on this machine Chromium used MJPEG by default (the third format listed), which is not perfect but much better. I now wonder if this is a Chromium vs. Chrome issue, or caused by running VLC before.

comment HD Pro Webcam C920 video choppy on new Win 10 PC using any software other than Logitech Webcam Software
If several applications have the same problems, maybe they use the same video decoder (maybe provided by Windows, or by the camera software if installed) and it fails. Essentially, an application can decide to get the compressed stream from the camera and decode it iself, or let the Windows API do that. Depending on that, a viable H264 decoder is needed in at the right place. You may look for the media codec list in device settings if a H264 codec is listed, and see if it could be replaced by some other one.

This webcam is in fact still sold at a quite high price, at it is able to povide FullHD video over USB 2.0. There are still no consumer webcams sporting usb 3.0 available, so FullHD via H264 is still the limit in consumer sector. The camera also has quite large optics, which almost none of the other FullHD webcams have. I guess USB3.0 webcams would exceed this camera's performance, but cameras using USB2.0 just can't get much better.

Yes, it works with any software that provides the interface to select the pixelformat (like ffmpeg or vlc). I think Chrome just defaults to YUV as this is the first format in the list of possible formats?

comment How to reliable attach to session DBUS over ssh?
On the other hand, pulseaudio uses dbus and should find and autenticate its own socket too if the right dbus is available.

Maybe iv'e mixing something together... As some dbus apps work, eg. the d-feet dbus viewer, I guess it has more to do with pulseaudio sockets besides of it's dbus connection.
