The webcam is working, because I can see me with the "Cheese" app.

I installed: google-talkplugin_current_i386.rpm.

Then I opened Chrome, and this is what I see:


The webcam part is black.

What can I do, so that "google chat" will recognize my webcam?

I've been on this for hours and I'm tired now. Can someone help?

  • I tried to disable all plugins, it's the same.

  • I tried it in Firefox. It freezes.

The only problem is the video part. Why can't I see the webcams picutre?

  • In firefox, can you post the details of Flash from the page about:plugins Be sure to expand the details tab on the upper right.

  • Actually, my last comment applies to Chrome, but Firefox also has an about:plugins page.

Try with this. It works for me with Fedora fc14.


Do you have the latest flash plugin?

Also, you can give Gnash a try, see what happens :)

  • i was trying with Google Chrome so it has a built-in up-to-date flash plugin! Mar 27 '11 at 9:32
