Not able to launch webcam; no video

Michael Gioia
I have my laptop webcam LED fire up just fine..., indicating an application is using it.
But Ekiga's video preview doesn't show anything.
And the 'Call Window' File and Call menu options are all greyed out..

Thoughts ?

Ekiga 'detect device' lists it as 'USB 2.0 HD UVC WebCam (PTLIB/DirectShow)'.. and does detect it..

Could you send us the -d 4 log when starting ekiga and trying to show
the camera images?

Does other application use the camera in the same time?

I do not understand.  What menus precisely?

Re: Not able to launch webcam; no video

Hi,

You mention two problems.

One is you do not see your camera, cf. your log:
2016/02/29 22:44:47.421  0:16.221 GMVideoOut...ager:13672 DirectX no
Overlay Capabilities
The only advice I have is to look at
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=626515#c44 (comment 44) to
see if it helps.

The other is you have a greyed menu.  This is normal, since no one is
calling you (Pick up), and you are not in communication phase (Hangup,
Hold Call etc.)

Sorry for being in late,
Eugen
