How to enable web-cam to record video.?
I like the inbuilt camera app want capture video with it.
is there any solution ?
AFAIK, there isn't, but I use cheese for my webcam.
sudo apt-get install cheese
It has many more options than the builtin camera. Yea, I would love to stick with the builtin stuff, but it needs many more features before it can be considered a full webcam program.
Some times the webcam could be disabled. Try
xinput enable id-of-your-webcam
