Make webcam mic work with Flash in ubuntu

Posted on 01/08/10 No Comments

I have been trying for a long time to make Flash 10 use my webcam’s mic under ubuntu (9.04 and 9.10) with no luck.

Flash settings only give one option in the microphone tab, and that is “Linux Microphone”.

Fortunately the solution is easy though not very obvious

install PulseAudio Volume Control

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

Then go to

Application > Sound & Video > PulseAudio Volume Control

In input devices make sure your webcam is not muted. Then in configuration set your webcams profile as “Analog Mono Input”

That’s it! Your webcams microphone is now working with flash.
