Install guvcview (webcam recorder) in ubuntu 16.04 / Linux Mint

Aug 10, 2017
Guvcview is a webcam recorder software for Linux. Its the best recorder I have come so far.
Its simple and uses less resources compared to other webcam applications like Cheese or KDE Kamoso.

It has a two window interface one for just displaying the video and the other for different controls and settings.

It can record still images as well as video in different file formats .bmp, .jpg, .png, .avi, .mkv and .webm etc..

It has many video control options like Frame Rate, Resolution and Video filters like Mirror, Invert, Negative, Mono, etc..

Its the default webcam application with Lubuntu Distribution.

How to install it on Ubuntu 16.04 / Linux Mint / Debian Enter these commands in your Linux terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pj-assis/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install guvcview
