google talks +linux \ ubuntu + video chat = logitech c 310 Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:081b Logitech, Inc.
is pulse installed ? (dpkg -l pulseaudio )
ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -acodec mp2 -f video4linux2 -s 1280×1080 -r 30 -i /dev/video0 -vcodec mjpeg -sameq test.avi
ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -ar 48000 -i hw:0,0 -acodec mp2 -f video4linux2 -s 1280×1080 -r 30 -i /dev/video0 -vcodec mjpeg -sameq test.avi
you can even test your webcam directly with ffplay with
ffplay -f alsa -ac 2 -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0
Stupid stuff considerations
i don’t know which is the worse thing you can get when you buy a webcam , if it doesn’t work or if works with some programs but with google talks no,
Google talks runs on linux mac and windows android and more i guess. and it’s opensource , and mainly i use it with my family that use linux and mac.
I bought a philips spc230nc and it worked with vlc kamoso and others gtk applications but didn’t with google talks.. This was a bad bad thing for me .
so right now i have a logitech c310 and it works out of the box! Just plug into kubuntu ,11.04 for my test, and it’ will work. it has 720p videos AND IT’S FAST.
the audio seems works good even into google talks so what i could say more ? Nice! problem solved
