Web cams generally don't work well under FreeBSD...



There is the pwcbsd, linux-ov511-kmod, and linux-gspca-kmod driver ports that suppose some webcams using drivers ported from Linux.


I'm not sure if the linux-kmod-compat port would allow the STV0680 drive to compile from sources or not (let along work, or work stably) but you could try it if you like.

Install MS Windows operating system and the drivers for your camera which you can probably find at the web-site of the company which manufactures your laptop.

Even the web-site can not be open properly with FreeBSD because it is using so much flash. how do you expect laptop to work with FreeBSD?

If you really want to use web-cam with *BSD your best bet is OpenBSD and its
uvideo driver for UVC compliant USB cameras. If your laptop is Windows Vista
compatible you are in business as Vista has drivers only for UVC video devices.
FreeBSD has no real support for web-cams to speak of. You can look for some of my older posts in which I described the state of USB camera support by FreeBSD in detail.

Hi motis,

Solution for your problem is to download new drivers for your webcam from the vendor's Website and follow the instructions in manual.As I have come across a site in the net, webcamestores, I would suggest you to visit that site, so that you can get some solution out there.
