i have run into same problem as a friend who bought a logitech c310
webcam. he told me about them being on sale, so i decided to buy one also.
the 2 webcam programs that i have installed from repos are ‘camorama’
both work well for single photos, but i can not get ‘cheese’ to make smooth, continuous video recording. what is recorded is a jerky motion for a few seconds, pause, short record, pause, repeatedly. sometimes, nothing is recorded.
i have run several web searches on ‘cheese’, and tried various solutions, to various similar problems, but have not found any to cure problem i am having.
system is an hp x86_64 w/ 2.8GiB memory KDE 4.3.4
]$ cat /etc/CentOS-release CentOS release 6.5 (Final)
]$ uname -a
2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 9 21:36:05 UTC 2014 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
]$ cheese –version Cheese 2.28.1
i need to make a video for legal purposes this weekend, so any and all suggestions and recommendations greatly appreciated.
