The diary of a dedicated Ubuntu user that lucked into his dream job working on the Ubuntu team.
Great video. Great app. Please let me know how I can download the app from your ppa.
Ok I found the url of your PPAI did:sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.201004270931.backupgksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.listAdd the following linesdeb http://ppa.launchpad.net/rick-rickspencer3/ppa/ubuntu lucid main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/rick-rickspencer3/ppa/ubuntu lucid main sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 91B3DBC8sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install gstreamer-webcam $ sudo apt-get install gstreamer-webcamReading package lists...

Great work on Quickly for this release. I hope that development continues as ... quickly ... in the future. Ba dam bam! I'll be here all week. Try the veal!No, seriously. Great work.
First run I got:gstreamer-webcamlibv4lconvert: Error decompressing JPEG: fill_nbits error: need 1 more bitsThe program 'gstreamer-webcam' received an X Window System error.This probably reflects a bug in the program.The error was 'BadIDChoice (invalid resource ID chosen for this connection)'. (Details: serial 224 error_code 14 request_code 1 minor_code 0) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)Then trying gstreamer-webcam --sync workedThen without --sync it still worked.Woot woop.:)
