Ekiga or other Linux webcam chat software

Postby npeacock » Sun Dec 16, 2012 9:18 pm

I've got the camera working and would like to try out a chat app with it. Ekiga can pull video in the preview window but seems to crash during video (or audio) calls so I think the problem is in the arm version, not our PengPod camera setup.

Any one know something else I should try or have experience with Ekiga?

Inspecting of strace logs and analyzing of core dump may be helpful. Some info may be found at Ekiga's wiki:

Running from a terminal and invoking debugging may also help:

Code: Select all
ekiga -d


EDIT:

That should be:

Code: Select all
ekiga -d 4
