    I am getting exactly the same problem with my installation for Linux. I am using Ubuntu 11 and open java 1.6.

    Note the strange characters between the 'v4l:' and the ':0'. If I run the jmfinit multple times (or jmregistry & detect capture devices) I get much the same output except that the strange characters in between the v4l: and the :0 are different each time - e.g. Name = v4l:sid ijbz jvcfbv:0

    So it appears the jmfinit is finding the camera ok - as its MediaLocator appears in the list, sort of - but because of the extraneous characters which are appearing from somewhere - it is not able to register it as it is not the correct name of the video device.

    The camera (& others) work fine with several webcam programs like cheese but just don't work here with JMF. My JMF installation seems to have gone OK (after I fixed the well known 'tail' problem in the script) & I have also read heaps of forums here & there & implemented some of their suggestions like moving the *.so & *.jar files to the jre directoriies & ensuring all the environment variables are set correctly such as LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc. I have also run things as root opened up a lot of permissions here & there but I can seem to get around this issue.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    In the above post where you see a surprise face I actually mean the : and 0 characters from the end of the 'Name=...' medialocator string in the output from jmfinit. The page substitutes the face & I don't know how to turn it off...

    Post whatever you don't want the forum to interpret between \
     tags.
    
    And don't resurrect old threads. Create a new one with fresh information that you provide from your own situation. In this case I wouldn't get my hopes up though; the thread went unanswered and JMF is something old and unsupported. There is little reason why things would change only a few months later.
