Webcam not working in Manjaro with Cheese, but works in Armbian
#1
Hello,

The Pinebook pro webcam doesn't work either in Cheese or Kamoso with the preinstalled Manjaro, and it's definitely not a privacy switch issue as replies all over this forum suggest.

It actually works with any of these :

mpv /dev/video4
vlc v4l2:///dev/video4
guvcview-qt -d /dev/video4

It also works with webcamoid - that needs to be built from AUR although.

And it also works in a Jitsi echo test in Vivaldi : https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/echotest.html

However, the Webcam works out-of-the-box with Cheese using either Armbian or Twister OS (Both based on Ubuntu LTS), so I wonder what library or helper might be missing in Manjaro to get it working.

I tried to search for a while, but to no avail so far.

Any clue would be much appreciated.

I noticed the same - I suspect it might have something to do with Cheese trying to access /dev/video0 or something?
