I'm usig ArchLinux, and my zoneminder version is 1.24.2(i guess its the last one).
I have a Microsoft Lifecam vx-1000 and I cant get it to work(it has been something like 7 hours trying and reading all over the web).
I tryed using videoforlinux v2 and v1 and loads of combinations and it didnt worked.. but with cheese it does!
So I read about mjpg_streamer, and I gave it a try. in the http://localhost:8080/?action=stream it works great, but when I configure it in zoneminder it doesnt:S
remove host port: 8080
remote host path: /?action=stream
image colours: 24bits colour
capture width 320
MJPG Streamer Version.: 2.0
i: Using V4L2 device.: /dev/video0
i: Desired Resolution: 640 x 480
i: Frames Per Second.: 5
i: Format............: MJPEG
o: www-folder-path...: disabled
o: HTTP TCP port.....: 8080
o: username:password.: disabled
o: commands..........: enabled
other problem that I'm facing is that I get shared memory errors (at first I didnt but now I do). and I tryed everything and it didnt solved the problem.
I changed /etc/sysctl.conf by setting kernel.shmall and shmmax to 1024000 (since I have 4GB) and it didnt worked (I rebooted yes). I also tryed bigger numbers and it didnt work too..
