I'm trying to record video with a webcam I bought (Logitech C170), looks like Cheese doesn't detect it). It is wierd cause other apps like Camorama detect the webcam correctly. Camorama only takes pics but I need to record video. What could it be? Why does Cheese doesn't detect the camera. Should I give up Cheese and try with other video app?, which one would you recomend?

  • Only for video? Or the camera is completely not recognized? – A.B. Sep 7 '15 at 18:13
  1. Reduce the video resolution to 640x480 in Cheese preferences
  2. Stop Cheese
  3. Re-plug the camera
  4. Start Cheese again.
