[Bug 1125324] Re: Lenovo EasyCamera not working


Ubuntu 13.10 with Linux 3.11.0-13 and the bug is still back here. Camera
works only in VLC, other software like Cheese or Skype show black screen
or artifacts. VLC every 2nd start shows too dark video (so only 1st
start the video is OK). Once I managed to see camera view in Cheeze by
changing resolution. But the problem stays that if I close Cheeze and
run it again video is too dark.
