My goal is to stream my webcam over https. Any recommendations beyond webcam-server and cvlc are welcome.
From VLC, I can say
Media -> Open Capture Device
and leave the
video 4 linux 2 capture mode selected. If I then select any of
for a video source and press "Play", I see my video. If I try to include
in the audio, I get the error
Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'alsa:///dev/snd/by-id/usb-Dynex_Dynex_1.3MP_Webcam-02'. Check the log for details.
Using alternative versions of the microphone gives the same error. e.g.
$ pwd /dev/snd/by-id $ ls usb-Dynex_Dynex_1.3MP_Webcam-02 $ file usb\-Dynex_Dynex_1.3MP_Webcam\-02 usb-Dynex_Dynex_1.3MP_Webcam-02: symbolic link to `../controlC1'
suggests I should use
/dev/snd/controlC1, but that yields the same MRL...alsa:/// error. Also, I don't see any log file in
