From google:
https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/SilverCrest_USB_2.0_Video_Grabber_VG_2000#Drivers

Code: Select all

1 Overview/Features
    1.1 Components Used
    1.2 Other Images
    1.3 Identification
2 Making it Work
    2.1 Firmware
    2.2 Drivers
    2.3 Test System
    2.4 Kernel Output
    2.5 Kernel Modules
    2.6 Remote Control Support
    2.7 Snapshot Control Support
3 External Links


The batch sold in 2010 called VG2010 ID 1d19:6105 has a chipset AF9035. The chipset support for AF9035 ID 1d19:6105 has to be enabled in the kernel modules. The kernel driver has to be amended to support the ID 1d19:6105.
If your problem is fixed, please mark your thread as [SOLVED] by editing the title of the first message in the thread.

Hi "npjrogers",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

The first thing to do is to give us more system information with the USB device plugged in, If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Depending upon the results of the commands, you may also benefit from updating the Linux Kernel.

Another command to see what video devices are recognized is below

Code: Select all

ls /dev/video*


Have you installed "ubuntu-restricted-extras" and the Video For Linux (search for "V4L") packages from the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)? If not, I recommend doing that.


Install "guvcview" webcam and V4L software and try it. This can record from any video device that is recognized.
http://linuxdaddy.com/blog/install-guvcview-on-ubuntu/
To install this using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pj-assis/testing

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install guvcview



Hope this helps ...

Why does your boilerplate always say to install ubuntu-restricted-extras? Isn't the correct Mint package mint-meta-codecs?

Hope this helps everyone. Simply download and install use Kdenlive software. The Lidl video capture works out of the box with this software rather than the software supplied with the USB video capture. No need to do anything except conne t the camera up.
