As I'm a nosey so and so I've had a look at both Alan's and your videos

My only comment is they all seem to be very very quiet - strangely Matt the
in built mic gives a better clarity volume than the headphone appears to do.

Come on folks, let's have a few more contenders for the UK Ubuntu You've
been framed award!


PS  I'm excluded from this game as I don't have the web cam - phew!

This looks like a fun game. Here's my attempt, 2 vids linked, one using
my logitech headset, the other using the cams internal mic.

The camera is a logitech QuickCam Connect:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:08d9 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Connect

It's using the gspca driver which I installed manually on my lovely
inspiron 6400. The only things I had to tweak was the fact that VLC
didn't seem to like me using ~ so had to type out the full path, and to
use the internal mic on the camera I changed the input source to

Ok, video with the headset (my normal setup):

and video with internal mic:

Is that of any use Mr Pope sir?
