I tested it with:
- Chromium 34.0 with Adobe Flash Player 11.2 (64 bits)
- Chromium 35.0 with Pepper Flash Player (32 bits)
- Iceweasel 10.0 with Adobe Flash Player 11.2 (64 bits)
- Iceweasel 31.7.0 with HTML5 (appear.in) (64 bits)
- Chromium 43.0 with Pepper Flash
I also tried to use it with
As for the microphone, Chromium, some websites (such as appear.in) and Audacity recognize it. Other software such as avconv don't. In summary, it's a f*ing mess. And yes, I selected the same device and "sub device" both with Audacity and avconv and everywhere else. I use ALSA only, however I tried using PulseAudio too.
Websites don't seem to recognize the camera. Neither does Chromium (all versions aforementioned):
Funny thing is, the mic it recognizes is the webcam's microphone!
I'm on Debian 7.6 (wheezy) (Update: 8.0 (jessie)), kernel is
x86_64 Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 but I also tested on a 32 bits computer with the same system. The manufacturer's website says the webcam is supported on Linux. It's a cheap, national webcam (Satellite WB-537).
I also installed Windows XP on a VM and tried to get it working. Skype didn't recognize it (but also recognized the camera's mic!). I downloaded ManyCam but that didn't help.
PS: This is not the issue. I have the website I want under "allow" (without asking). It just doesn't recognize the camera at all.
PPS: Buying a new webcam is an option, but since there's nothing wrong with the current one (as it works on camorama, etc), I'm not sure if it'd solve the issue.
I don't mind using whatever hack/kludge necessary to get it working.
