Inspiron 1525 Webcam
I was wondering how I get my webcam to work with BT4.
Good friend of the forums
Most webcams work with uvc. http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/
For your kind information.those drivers are already in BT4 as they comes by default with 2.6.26 & above.
Out of curiosity: why do you want to use your webcam on a pentesting distro? Do you want to videochat with relatives (not really backtrack's aim), or do you have a motion detection app to protect your laptop? (which would actually be awesome at cons, just imagine a siren going off as soon as someone nears it)
i would like to use my webcam and chat with someone on the one interface, while playing around with the other wlan interface, thats why I would like to get my cam to work.
I've exactly the same problem. It is said, that above Kernel 2.6.26 the UVC driver is nativly.
But on my backtrack 4 pre final it is not working.
any help is apreciated
Very good friend of the forum
can you post all the relevant info like dmesg outputs ETC.
To test try
Just burned his ISO
This doesn't work.
However, specifying fps does.
Just replace ## with however many Frames Per Second you want.
mplayer -fps ## tv://
If you're not root, then type sudo before mplayer.
I also don't think that mplayer is designed for video chat, but, correct me if I'm wrong.
Don't know why anyone would want to video chat in BT, but w/e, who am I to judge?
