im using firefox 39 on a custom linux distribution. my webcam is supported under linux using the v4l2 api. the blue jeans plugins seems unable to get video and sound from the usb webcam even if the plugin detects the presence of the webcam.

is it an issue with v4l2?

what api does the plugin use?

If a USB hub exists in between, try removing it and connecting USB camera direct to PC USB port.
