I just got an invitation for Google+, the video conference feature "hangout" is the first feature I checked out, and unfortunately the webcam is not working, the mic and speakers work ok. When I started it, it recquired me to install a new version of Google Talk plugin 220.127.116.11.
It seems that now the gmail chat and the chat within empathy( that used to work) does not work either.
in the settings of the webcam in google hangout window my only option, is gspca driver.
Notice that my cam had problems with skype, and I had to go around it by
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype
How can I make it work?
