webcam issues recording

Asked by Derrick Matthews on 2011-02-21

basically the summary says it all, my webcam works perfect for skype and related sites, but when I'm trying to record a video via the cheese webcam booth, it's terribly choppy(great quality just recording in frames), and I know it's got to be maybe something with the drivers because before I switched to Ubuntu 10.10 from Windows 7 starter it recorded fine.does anybody out there in the ubuntu universe know of a solution.

Try luvcview, it works better with some cameras

my webcam is built in and luvcview seems to be for external webcams

luvcview works with my internal camera,did you try it?

Can you help with this problem?
