I hope that there is someone out here that can help me out with this
situation. I will try to be as brief as possible and still give the details.
I have a bttv card that works fine and is using /dev/video0. So I have a
QuickCam Express USB and I want to set it up on /dev/video1. I load the
module mod_quickcam that came with SuSE and I see in USBView that its
installed and working fine. Then I use xawtv -c /dev/video1 and the screen
opens I get this error in Term:
This is xawtv-3.72, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.10-4GB)
/dev/video1 [v4l]: no overlay support
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
config: invalid value for input: Television
valid choices for "input": "Camera"
ioctl: VIDIOCMCAPTURE(0,fmt=3,size=176x144): Invalid argument
Now I have been told that is normal. but when xawtv starts I get a green
window with a small line at the top that is video. I can run my hand over the
cam and see it in this small line in xawtv. I look in xconsole and it tells
me, repeated several times:
error: quickcam: frame size is incorrect!
This will repeat until I turn xawtv off. I have been everywhere looking for a
answer for this and how to adjust the frame size to make this work but
nothing. I have been in chat's and all over the web. I even emailed SuSE
about it and no help. Does anybody have any idea on how to get the problem
Thanks for your time,
