I was playing around with VLC Media and tried to record a webcam video.
There is no webcam device listed and I do have a webcam. This is the 1st time I have tried to use it.
Perhaps there is some software I need to install using Muon Package manager. When I search for webcam or VLC many options come up and I have no idea what they all mean or what to add.
Can anyone assist me?
I have a Lenovo laptop… not sure what webcam I have but here is a list of all my devices:
It doesn’t seem I have a video card??? Not sure what I am looking at.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 650M] (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)
04:00.0 System peripheral: JMicron Technology Corp. SD/MMC Host Controller (rev 30)
04:00.2 SD Host controller: JMicron Technology Corp. Standard SD Host Controller (rev 30)
04:00.3 System peripheral: JMicron Technology Corp. MS Host Controller (rev 30)
04:00.4 System peripheral: JMicron Technology Corp. xD Host Controller (rev 30)
I went to settings/audio & video and no device is listed for video but there is a webcam opening on my laptop.
So confusing right!!!
Thanks so much!
