i have run into same problem as a friend who bought a logitech c310
webcam. he told me about them being on sale, so i decided to buy one

the 2 webcam programs that i have installed from repos are 'camorama'
and 'cheese'.

both work well for single photos, but i can not get 'cheese' to make
smooth, continuous video recording. what is recorded is a jerky
motion for a few seconds, pause, short record, pause, repeatedly.
sometimes, nothing is recorded.

i have run several web searches on 'cheese', and tried various
solutions, to various similar problems, but have not found any to
cure problem i am having.

system is an hp x86_64 w/ 2.8GiB memory
KDE 4.3.4
]$ cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS release 6.5 (Final)
]$ uname -a
2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 9 21:36:05 UTC 2014 x86_64 
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
]$ cheese --version
Cheese 2.28.1

i need to make a video for legal purposes this weekend, so
any and all suggestions and recommendations greatly appreciated.



peace out.

in a world with out fences, who needs gates.
