Hye folk,

I connected logitech webcam C270 with VMware ( Ubuntu 14.04) on window system. I can see web cam is connected with system. I installed cheese software for record the video.

$ ls dev/video* show me dev/video0 and

$ lsusb show me following results:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 046d:0825 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C270
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0e0f:0002 VMware, Inc. Virtual USB Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0e0f:0003 VMware, Inc. Virtual Mouse
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

so webcam is connected with system but when i open cheese software, it is appear only blank black screen. I updated my Os as well as i reboot the system after installing cheese.

Why it is behave like this? Is it problem associate with cheese or web cam?
Kindly solve my problem. Waiting your response.
