I think my issue is related to this bug. This is Ubuntu 12.04. Attached is what I get when I plug it in to the USB port.
I get the same issue with Alsa mixer. If I tries to select the camera as a card, Alsa mixer dies with the "invalid argument." ** Attachment added: "ps_camera_init.txt" https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/886449/+attachment/3892576/+files/ps_camera_init.txt -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/886449 Title: [USB-Audio - USB Camera-B4.04.27.1 (playstation eye), recording] Pulseaudio fails to detect card To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/886449/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
