Logitech Quickcam Express
« on: October 14, 2010, 01:19:12 pm »
hi all,

i have a old Logitech QuickCam Express, lsusb tells me:
Code: [Select]
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:0840 Logitech, Inc. Quickcam Express
following these wiki's:
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Logitech_QuickCam_Sphere
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/USB_Surveillance_Camera
i have been trying to get my usb cam working;
at best i get a picture where i can, very, very vaguely see a image but with a lot of green/purple distortion (big blocks).

if i go to mythtv setup, in the 'capture card setup' section i see:
Code: [Select]
Video Device: /dev/video0
Probed info: Camera [STV06xx]

in the webadmin -> motion wrapper -> Device data -> Motion Parameters,
i set these values:
Code: [Select]
#image settings
frequency 0
rotate 0
width 352
height 258
framerate 15
auto_brightness on
brightness 25
contrast 25
saturation 25
hue 25


#http control

#output

#movies

ffmpeg_video_codec mpeg4

#snapshot config

jpeg_filename %Y/%m/%d/%H/minute_%M_%S
movie_filename %Y/%m/%d/recordings/%m_%d_%Y_%H_%M_%S
timelapse_filename %Y/%m/%d/timelapse/%m-%d-%Y-timelapse

been playing around in motion wrapper and edited resolution, framerates and the suggestions according to the wiki's,
but nothing seems to get me a good picture.

anybody any idea or suggestion?

br,
Raymond
