    It seems is missing the package libv4l-dev. Follow these instruction to compile wxcam: http://wxcam.sourceforge.net/#CODE001

    Thank you for the reply but that doesn't appear to be my issue. I have that library installed.

    I have libv4l-0, libv4l-dev, lib32v4l-0, and lib32v4l-dev installed.

    everyone says: "libv4l-videodev.h from libv4l-dev is a replacement for the obsolete linux/videodev.h" so if your libv4l-dev does not provide libv4l-videodev.h try to replace the string "libv4l-videodev.h" with the "linux/videodev.h" … let me know

    Well i'm not really sure what the problem was but i did get it to compile. I was running Ubuntu Lucid so i just updated to Ubuntu Natty and then it compiled fine.

    Not really the way I wanted to go about it but I was going to eventually upgrade to Natty anyways.

    Thanks for the help though!

    Just tested it out and man it works great so far! Great job!

    You should really look in to setting up a ppa at launchpad or something. That would be awesome that way i could just plug in your ppa and keep it up to date. Just make sure you do a 64-bit as well as a 32-bit. :-)

    Thank you for all your hard work on this. I really hated using Cheese. It's horrible. It freezes on me when I attempt to record video and doesn't work well at all with my camera. wxcam is superior by far!
