Does anyone has a clue why the Logitech E3500 camera stream is displayed in some kind of distored or tinted image in GoogleTalk chat ? In both setup window and in the online video chat too.

  • google-talk plug-in displays the picture with lines and wrong colors in it, also the resoltuion seems to be different to standard. Is the plugin trying to adjust "wide screen" res. ?

  • guvcview can display image correctly with 640x480 resolution

  • cheese video is OK as well

Can anyone give a hint what could be the cause please ?

  • Ubuntu 11.10 64bit
  • Plugin Google Talk verze
  • Plugin Google Talk - akcelerátor videa verze
