I have some issues when recording/videocalling with Logitech C270 USB webcam: my voice is high-pitched, accelerated, squeaky. The odd thing is that this happens sometimes, not always, and independently from software used (Teams, Skype, Meet, Audacity, arecord, audio-recorder, Telegram); every time it happens, I get a
usb 1-2: reset high-speed USB device number 3 using ehci-pci
dmesg output. More information:
- Using audio-recorder I can distinguish when my recording is going to be "bad" because time flows more slowly (a 3 s recording lasts 5-6 s);
- I have the same problem on Kubuntu 18.04 and MX 19.1;
Restarting pulseaudio by
pulseaudio -k pulseaudio --start
sometimes fixes, sometimes not;
-r 16000when invoking
arecorddoesn't fix (I tried this since many people solved similar issues by changing default sample rate in pulseaudio settings, which I have not tried since my issue is not exactly the same);
The only application I had no issues with (if I remember correctly) is guvcview: when recording, anyway,
uvcvideo: Failed to query (SET_CUR) UVC control 4 on unit 1: -32 (exp. 4).
Please ask for every piece of information you need.
