Thanks! Can you confirm you're running OBS version > 26? I just did a new install on Ubuntu snap 20.10, v4l2loopback-dkms, on a different machine and I can't find it. If you're running version 26, that would give me a lot of info.
UPDATE: I was able to see my webcam works with cheese but I still can't see anything in OBS StudioHi.
I am super new to Ubuntu. I run a YouTube channel and I can't use my regular things I use for making videos. OBS seems to be the best option along with Shortcut which I plan to use.
I have no idea how to use this stuff. I have been searching all over and can't find a fix. My problem isn't that I can't select V4L2 but that I have no picture at all even when I have it selected. I tried recording, but I still get no picture and don't know where to find my video recordings so I can't check with another program to see if my recording works or not. I think my audio works fine, but it's a little low. So if someone knows how I can actually view what I am recording and also how to turn my mic up that would be awesome.
My webcam is: PC Webcam for Streaming HD 1080P, Vitade 960A USB Pro Computer Web Camera Video Cam for Mac Windows Laptop Conferencing Gaming with Microphone & Ring Light
My mic is: USB Microphone Kit 192KHZ/24BIT MAONO AU-A04T PC Condenser Podcast Streaming Cardioid Mic Plug & Play for Computer, YouTube, Gaming Recording
Thanks to anyone willing to help a complete newb out.
Hi, I think just recently I found "MJPEG" as a native pixel format option (in addition to the previous alternatives of YUV/YVU/BGR3 (emulated) that are still present) for some V4L2 capture devices. A pleasant surprise, but I have not been able to find anything in the release announcements that would suggest when or where this has been added. Anybody has a suggestion when this might have happened? Or is this a consequence of kernel updates or library changes or possibly some other change unrelated to OBS?
