I am using a Logitech c270h on Xubuntu 12.04 and it works with Skype, Pidgin, camorama, etc.... The issue I have is that I can not get it to utilize full resolution, which is 1280x720.
anthony@terminal:~$ v4l-info ### v4l2 device info [/dev/video0] ### general info VIDIOC_QUERYCAP driver : "uvcvideo" card : "UVC Camera (046d:0825)" bus_info : "usb-0000:00:1d.2-2.2" version : 3.2.30 capabilities : 0x4000001 [VIDEO_CAPTURE,STREAMING] - SNIP - VIDIOC_G_FMT(VIDEO_CAPTURE) type : VIDEO_CAPTURE fmt.pix.width : 352 fmt.pix.height : 288 fmt.pix.pixelformat : 0x47504a4d [MJPG] fmt.pix.field : NONE fmt.pix.bytesperline : 0 fmt.pix.sizeimage : 12800 fmt.pix.colorspace : SRGB fmt.pix.priv : 0
This is in line with the result I experience. No HD resolution. Is there something wrong with my device, or is it a driver issue? Is there some additional configurations that can be made to get this thing working at full capacity?
