• Sony EyeToy Microphone


    I bought a cheap Sony Eye webcam on Amazon for $8, and it works fairly well, but I can’t get the microphone to work. I’ve read the wiki and tried the suggestions, but it isn’t picking up sound. lsusb shows it on card 2 device 0. It shows up in the multimedia settings screens, but I’m not having any luck. pavucontrol shows this mic and the internal mic, but only the internal seems to be active. Does anyone have this mic? Any ideas? Thanks. Cheers.

  • Excuse me but did you see this: https://renatocunha.com/blog/2012/04/playstation-eye-audio-linux/ He was also using Arch and an Eye camera that had no audio.

    Sorry if you tried this already.

  • @blinky It works now. Thank you very much!
