Added thank!
Also, thins line:

inherit eutils kde4-base qt4-r2

must not be changed to just:

inherit eutils

since Webcamoid doesn't depends in KDE and it can't be build with Qt4?

Now, in Webcamoid 7.0.0, you can use the virtual camera feature for feeding other programs like Skype and Hangouts. You need to install v4l2loopback from your repositories.

Seems that Sisyphus repository contains latest versions for Qt.

Configure that repository, update your system and try again. - Sep 08 2015
Hi, you are using Qt 5.3.1, you need Qt 5.4 or higher.
- Sep 07 2015
That feature is already planed for 6.x ~ 7.x.

I've installed package You asked me (but it was for saucy not trusty- wich is my distribution).

Yeah, I know, thats a packaging error, there are many distros, versions, and architectures, I can't manage all at same time. Linus Torvalds explained this problem in a recent talk:

webcamoid: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You must install libqt5widgets5.
- Oct 12 2014
I've tested it on Ubuntu 14.04, you need to install this package:
- Oct 11 2014
Try with:

sudo apt-get install libqt5multimedia5 opencv-data

And then:

sudo dpkg -i webcamoid_5.1.0-1_amd64.deb
- Oct 04 2014
I've that experience will working in the next version (I'll remove lrelease as dependency for 6.0.0).
For now, try changing this lines:


lrelease -qt=5

I'm an Arch Linux and Qt Creator user, and I've not any problem building Webcamoid.
Can you paste the full error report? - Oct 03 2014
Multicore build is not possible for now. Its a bug inherited from QMake.
- Oct 02 2014
Did you tried these instructions?

Hi, in case you can't install Webcamoid in Debian/Ubuntu/Mint you can compile it from the sources:
- Aug 09 2014
Compiling Webcamoid is very easy, what error gives you?

Making a package for each distribution and architecture is impossible for me.
If you want an Webcamoid package for your distribution,request it to the package maintainers of your distribution:

I suppose that they will update the Python bindings when completed the port to Qt5. I don't think you have to worry about that, it will be a big disaster if they remove the support for a very popular programming languaje.
In my case, I don't want the port to C++ but I hanven't other option, it's due to an unsolvable problem between the Python GIL and the GTK and Qt threads :(

Great, Thanks! :D - Oct 14 2012
What Debian stage are you using? Stable? Testing? Sid? - Aug 06 2012
What is your KDE version?
- Aug 06 2012
All right, test the new version (3.1.0). - Aug 03 2012
Webcamoid works with Python 2.7 only. But anyways I will upload an update as soon as possible, I have some problems with github at this moment.
- Aug 03 2012
I will continue adding new features later, but in the future I want to join Webcamoid with my other proyect to provide more advanced features such as augmented reality:
- Mar 02 2012
I was tested webcamoid 12 hours on Arch (Chakra and Arch have similar packages versions).
Now, I tested it in a Kubuntu netbook around 6 hours, it goes slow but does not crashes.
- Mar 02 2012
Ok, tested for 12 hours continuously with the same webcam, no crashing, test the new version again.
- Mar 01 2012
Fixed thanks you, download and test the latest version.
- Feb 29 2012
What version have you installed? There are some problems with the previous version (1.1.1)
- Dec 20 2011
Jajaja XD, at your wish:

When you say that the image is bad quality, you mean low resolution? Is pixelated? Low FPS? when you take a picture, what is the resolution of that photo? What is the resolution of your webcam?
- Aug 31 2011
Both OpenCV and VLC, for example in Linux, use V4L to capture images from the webcam. Possible reasons why in VLC the image look better can be:

- Maybe VLC captures images in higher resolution, I think that OpenCV does too, but I can not prove it because the only webcams that I have, both have a maximum resolution of 640x480 :(
- VLC uses filters to improve image quality, while Webcamoid shows pictures as they come from the webcam, without filters.

On Arch Linux it works well, I use it day-by-day. I don't know what do you meant with "errors", I tested the code in Bash before and give no errors.
Are you using the last version?
- Apr 14 2012
I not tested this service in KDE 3.5, just in KDE 4, I have no idea if this is a problem related to your desktop, sorry.
If you have a folder that is still locked, you can unlock it with:

su -c 'chattr -i -R /path/to/folder'

For files, just remove the -R parameter.
- Apr 13 2012
Fixed thank you! - Jan 14 2012
What file system are you using?
If you run this command:

sudo chattr +i -R folderToLock


sudo chattr +i fileToLock

What is the error message?
- Jan 14 2012
What do you mean with "normally"?
Once a file is locked you can access it for view and read, but you can't access it for edit, write or delete, not even root can do it, not even from a LiveCD.
But this work only on files and folders located in ext2, ext3 and ext4 partitions.

Fixed, thank you. - Jan 10 2012
