Review of Linux Compatibility

The Creative Labs Live! Cam Optia AF is a USB webcam with USB ID 041e:4058:

The webcam get initialized automatically by the Linux kernel:

and uses the uvcvideo drivers. Unfortunately, this model has some problems under Linux:

  • Auto-suspend of the webcam does not functions with kernel versions between v2.3.37 und v3.5.
  • A bug in kernel versions lower than 2.6.34.7 causes a black video stream for several Linux users.
  • The webcam is not supported under several Linux distributions (e.g., Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 ).
