I don't know if this is the proper list to address the question but here
it goes and sorry if I'm wrong.
I wanted to ask if there is any support for the Playstation3 Eye USB
Camera Microphone provided by alsa at the moment or if there are plans
to support it.
Currently from what I could figure out:
root at Mihai:~# cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Audigy ]: Audigy - Audigy 1 [SB0090]
Audigy 1 [SB0090] (rev.3, serial:0x531102) at
0xb880, irq 23
1 [CameraB304061 ]: USB-Audio - USB Camera-B3.04.06.1
OmniVision Technologies, Inc. USB
Camera-B3.04.06.1 at usb-0000:00:1d.7-5.1, hi
the Microphone Camera is seen there.
I successfully recorded something using Audacity and the OSS driver that
was reported in the recording options.
What I can't do is control the sound levels via the gnome volume control
applet (which uses alsactl store and restore).
Also, alsamixer won't work.
root at Mihai:~# alsactl store
alsactl: get_control:262: Cannot read control '2,0,0,Mic Capture
Volume,0': Invalid argument
root at Mihai:~# alsamixer -c 1
alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: Invalid argument
