Two questions here:

1) how can I view logged webcam sessions in Linux? (I was able to do this in windows, but now I only use Linux)

2) how can I log my own webcam sessions?

I'm using SVN aMSN 0.97b. Strangely enough in about menu it says date 06/16/2006.
SVN tells me "r8950". I did a checkout at 2007-08-12.

Thank you very much.

Search on forums! Those questions have been asked and answered before

Not really.
I've already searched for "logged webcam "... and searched again.

The only way webcam logs can be viewed is from aMSN. I would like to view them from vlc or mplayer.
Second, there is no single mention about saving my own webcam session.

You didn't search correct.

See this post: http://www.amsn-project.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=944 this post is on Important Announcements and is sticky
An this post: http://www.amsn-project.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2954 this is on Linux forum and is sticky too

And if you make a good search, you can see a lot of people asking for your questions.

Thanks.
Well, that solves one of the questions. There is still:
2) how can I log my own webcam sessions?

I searched for "log own webcam" (3 hits) and "record own webcam" (0 hits) but no luck on this one.

It was asked. It's not implemented.

OK, so my own webcam session can't be logged.
But is there any way to use aMSN as a video+audio recorder (when not chatting)? Or can anyone suggest any program that can be used as video+audio recorder?
luvcview only supports video. I tried vlc but it doesn't work for me.
So far I only have aMSN supporting video+sound.

Thanks!

audio/video recorder is not amsn's job.. we are an IM client.. the 'player' for logged webcams is already something out of our context...
for a very good audio/video recorder, try mencoder, install it (part of mplayer), then do a 'man mencoder' you'll get a lot of examples on how to use it, helps to copy paste them instead of setting your own command line options :p

Yes, I understand... It's just that... so close and yet so far away...
Maybe one of these days I'll give it a go at aMSN code... :roll:

After looots of hours on this I still don't have anything working. Since this is going outside aMSN I understand if no one replies...

It works but I can't see what is being recorded so it's useless.

vlc
I doesn't support v4l2 devices.

2) how can I log my own webcam sessions?

Not that I've been searching for an answer all this time but... by chance it occured me that: using recordmydesktop (kde and gnome apps have different functionality) it's possible to,
- record my session
- record the other person's session
- record typed conversation
- everything gets synchronized
- audio + video

Disadvantage... if you overlap a window over aMSN's ones... they wont be recorded.


About the program to record audio and video synchronized... I still have no clue.
