    I cannot connect my cam to stickam's flash interface. stickam is an online live video broadcast/chat site like justin.tv, ustream, etc.
    I checked youtube quick connect and also could not connect the cam.
    The cam works great in skype/desktop cam software.

    I upgraded to flash player 10 (firefox shows as installed)
    Still no camera for online :(

    Any ideas for me

    No ideas how to solve your issues with Stickam in linux, but I will report that it works fine for me with the stock XP SP3 install on a 160GB HD model.

    http://www.stickam.com/dougdoberman I'm usually live on Monday nights, webcasting from the swing dance events that I DJ. Sporadically other times.

    When I do this, I disable the internal webcam through the device manager and use an external Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 which has a wider angle lens than the typical cam. I haven't found a way to get Stickam to let me choose which cam to use, hence the need to disable the internal.

    I assume that you've verified the cam works outside of Stickam? How long are you giving it to get up and running? I've noticed that sometimes it takes a little while to get going.

    I do, infact, have a working camera and mic outside of stickam. I can use it fine with the linpus included webcam app, I can use it with skype, etc.
    It only fails when I am using the cam/mic online...i.e., Stickam, facebook, youtube....which leads me to believe it is a FLASH permissions problem. I had a similar problem on a Ubuntu machine, and i remedied the prob by fixing a "user settings" setting, but i see no such place in my AAO XFCE linpus.
    I have not tried a usb webcam...but that would defeat the purpose of what I need...I want to have a quick setup for on the road so I can open my AAO and "go live" on stickam without needing to plug in a external cam.
    I recently came back to linpus from Linux4one (ubuntu), because I coudn't get a decent skype audio in L4O....I may just go to Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04 and see if that will solv my stickam problem...I just wish I could have it all ya know? If I could find a distro that could:
    1. connect with stickam
    2. work well with skype (audio!!!!)
    3. record decently in Audacity
    then I would be happy...but it appears there is not a distro that will do all these 3 things for me.
    anyone???
