Webcam videos - kamoso vs cheese

Ian Bruntlett
Hi All,

I tried using "kamoso" to record webcam videos. It was unusable. After _much_ effort installing this or that library, I went to askubuntu.com, it recommended "cheese" instead. Installed that, recorded a short webcam video and played it back with another program.

Hardware involved:-
Samsung NC10 - hawking
Intel Atom N270, 1.66GHz, 32-bit, 2GiB RAM, 149.05 GiB hard drive, no optical drive, Ethernet and WiFi connections, lubuntu typically installed via USB flashdrive
https://gist.github.com/21b61903871ee685fc79

Operating system used:
Lubuntu 18.04 LTS, 32 bit.

I'm setting it up for someone who will need to record a video for a course in a few months time and was facing the prospect of buying a £400-£500 laptop in order to do that, something she can ill afford.

HTH,


Ian
