My new webcam from Think Penguin just arrived so I decided create this quick test video. I’m very impressed. It literally worked out of the box. I just plugged it into my Solus and installed Guvcview.
This video was recorded using Guvcview there was a slight amount of audio noise that I cleared up in Audacity then replaced using ffmpeg into an OGG Vorbis video.
If you’re curious the ffmpeg terminal commands used to replace the audio were as follows.
ffmpeg -i edited.ogg -i video.mkv -vcodec copy final.ogv
I recorded this screencast and to test the directional noise canceling using SimpleScreenRecorder then converted the file in ffmpeg to bring down the file size to a nice and manageable 4MB via ffmpeg
ffmpeg -i screencast.mkv screencast.mp4

If you follow me with any regularity you might notice I’m a Field Notes fan. This new edition just appeared on the Field Notes website recently and I was very inspired by the video.
