I was running Droidcam perfectly well on my laptop until recently. I did a "sudo apt-get upgrade" and subsequently it seems some files updated. Anyway, all of a sudden Droidcam has stopped working, with an error of "Device not found (/dev/video[0-9]). Did you install it?". thinking I must have stuffed something up, I returned to the site which educated me on the steps of installing the app in the first place (http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/201 ... ss-webcam/) suddenly its no longer working. The below is the output - I have no idea what it means, I am new to Linux (month or two experience) I wonder i you can help!
