Topic: Quick Cam Messenger and Chumby crash
Sorry if this has been answered before, I think I've read just about every webcam thread by now and didn't see this behavior mentioned anywhere.
I've managed to cross compile the quick cam messenger driver via scratchbox and got it loaded on my Original Chumby. I'm not absolutely certain, but I think the driver is rather old and only supports v4l (not v4l2). Whenever I attempt to access the webcam through /dev/video0 through ffmpeg (also cross-compiled via scratchbox) or using an img tool script I gleaned from another thread, the chumby stops responding and appears to reboot. After the reboot I only find messages regarding that boot in dmesg.
So my question is, how would I go about troubleshooting this? Has anyone had any luck with the qcmessenger driver?
