I am using

Ubuntu 16.04 and for screen recording kazam 1.5.3

I am trying to use video from webcam option available in kazam.

But video from webcam is not working. when i check the video from webcam option it is showing black box rather than webcam.

Where is the problem. and how can i get rid of this.

Here is a screenshot.


Thank you

    Guvcview is just another webcam application like Cheese. It can help to test webcam. – N0rbert Mar 19 '18 at 16:22
