I`ve recently received Logitec QuickCam Express Plus and was wondering
whether I can use it with freebsd. When I plug it in I see the following
in messages ugen0: vendor 0x046d Camera, rev 1.10/0.00, addr 5 and the
led on the camera is on. I`ve installed pwc (multimedia/pwcbsd from
ports) but when I load the module nothing happens: I don`t see anything
in messages and no /dev/video0 is created. My system is FreeBSD
6.2-STABLE #4: Sat Apr 21 23:27:13 CEST 2007 if that would be of any
So my question is: can I use my webcam. If yes how :) ? and if no, is
there some way to change the answer to yes?
Did you disconnect and reconnect the camera after loading the pwc module?
If it still doesn't appear, you need to post the 'usbdevs -v' output
which will include the device ID as well as the manufacturer ID.
Apropos webcameras, I'm currently working on a Linux USB emulation layer for
the new USB stack, that will enable High-Speed webcams working through the
same "pwcbsd" module that Luigi has created.
