You can determine and change the width, height and frame rate for the webcam connected.

Alternatively, you can determine the values supported by the webcam in the local terminal with the command webcam-info -l.

To determine and change the values for width, height and frame rate, proceed as follows:

  1. Start the Webcam Information function.
    The following values will be shown:
    • Width: Width of the image in pixels
    • Height: Height of the image in pixels
    • Rate: Frame rate in fps (frames per second: individual images per second). Example: 1/30 means 30 individual images per second.
  2. Click on one of the fields to change the value. The supported values will be shown in the process.
  3. Click on Test.
    The video image generated by the webcam with the current settings will be shown.

    In order to check whether the webcam is functioning in a session (e.g. redirected via Citrix HDX Webcam Redirection), open in your browser within the session.
