Hercules Webcam

Hercules Classic ? But Deluxe/DualPix seem to have the same USB id…



  • ID 05a9:4519 OmniVision Technologies, Inc. Webcam Classic

With kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r6:

  • Device Drivers, <M> Multimedia Support, [*] Video capture adapters, [*] V4L USB devices, <M> GSPCA based webcams, <M> OV519 USB Camera Driver


Test with mplayer

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=640:height=480:device=/dev/video0


This driver is V4L2, and skype only manages V4L1, so you have to start skype with the following command:

env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
