Built-in webcam was not initialized
« on: December 28, 2020, 12:01:51 AM »
Hi, I can't make my webcam work which is Silicon Motion WebCam SC-0311139N for SAMSUNG N150 Plus. I have downloaded and put onboot the v412-utils.tcz and manually loading usbutils.tcz. By the way this netbook has no dedicated FN keys to manually enable/disable the webcam.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ dmesg | grep uvc

P.S. I have also found this kernel driver for the said hardware

Right driver, wrong device. You have the 1020:

WebCam SC-0311139N (usb-0000:00:1d.7-8):

@Rich
ok, thanks for the reference, how should I compile this kernel driver?

It doesn't look like you need an additional kernel driver - your webcam should be ready to go at /dev/video0 and/or /dev/video1.

You should be able to use ffmpeg, guvcview or cheese to access your webcam.

With ffmpeg, something like:
Code: [Select]
$ ffmpeg -f v4l2 -video_size 640x480 -i /dev/video0

You could try:
Code: [Select]
$ ffmpeg -f video4linux2 -input_format h264 -i /dev/video0 out.h264
$ ffplay out.h264

Edit: with gtk3 loaded, this shows the webcam directly:
Code: [Select]
$ ffplay -f video4linux2 -video_size 640x480 -i /dev/video0

Hi cute curtis
You can forget about flash:
Quote
Since Adobe will no longer be supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe strongly recommends all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.

Since we are not allowed to distribute flash player, it needs to be downloaded from Adobe.

Will you be able to download it after 2020:

No.  Adobe will remove Flash Player download pages from its site after the EOL Date. Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021.

Found here:
https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html

So the extensions can not be fixed.
