I just bought a new C200 webcam. It seems to be working with some applications in Ubuntu 9.04 for me, but not in others. In cheese, ffmpeg and xawtv the camera seemed to work fine. However, using camorama and pd it doesn't seem to be recognized properly. When attempting to open camorama I am being told that it cannot find a video source at /dev/video0.
When using the pix_video object I am getting no error attempting to use device0 but it is still not getting any video. One thing that I am noticing is when using dmesg in terminal, the webcam is listed under a different path than /dev/video0. It's under a very long path, starting with /device/. I don't know if this is part of the problem but if anyone has any suggestions it would be very appreciated. I thought I'd check on the pd forum first since the camera does seem to be working in most other apps right now.
