Cheese can't use logitech C170 webcam
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I couldn't use my logitech C170 webcam in cheese. I think this is a common issue with cheese, the terminal ouput shows this:

libv4l2: error got 4 consecutive frame decode errors, last error: v4l-convert: libjpeg error: End Of Image
(cheese:9695): cheese-WARNING **: Failed to allocate a buffer: gstv4l2src.c(871): gst_v4l2src_create (): /GstCameraBin:camerabin/GstWrapperCameraBinSrc:camera_source/GstBin:bin35/GstV4l2Src:v4l2src1

I don't think this is a Solus problem really, this is an old bug, but the workaround is very simple: change the resolution to 640x480. So maybe something can be done to fix this in Solus, maybe some sane default that can be used to avoid this annoyance...

This is something that should be fixed upstream in Solus. Closing since there is no actionable item for us.
