Post Trouble w/ microphone and video
Having trouble with my microphone and video on Mepis 8.5 64-bit, using an HP Probook 4720s.

The microphone will work with Skype, but not with KRec. When I say "work", I mean it will record something. The sound quality is terrible, much worse than on windows.

The video will work with Cheese, but not with Skype. Again, "work" means that it records with about half the expected resolution.

I've been running though some solutions online, and nothing seems to help.

Some details:

Post used a different distro
In case anyone has similar issues w/ an HP ProBook: I tried a couple distro's w/ similar results, including openSUSE. Finally I installed KUbuntu 10.4 instead, everything worked right off the CD, including the ATI graphics driver.

I believe this is caused by the XOrg that's used in debian stable. When the debian testing version (which is used in KUbuntu) makes stable this shouldn't be an issue. Which means, check back when Mepis 10 comes along.
