I tried to make a video call using Google Hangouts running on Raspberry Pi 2 B Model with Chromium working on Raspbian 8. Everything worked well but the RPi-camera had very bad quality on Chromium. Trying to do the same on iceweasel got me stuck at installing Google Hangouts plugin which I couldnt find online.Can anyone help me with this? Or maybe tell me how can I improve quality of camera on chromium?


The quality issue in Chromium is a long standing bug in Chromium (related issue #1498 in pi linux repo and associated forum thread) to do with the way it handles V4L2 devices that advertise a continuous range of resolutions rather than a discrete set.

6by9's last comment in #1498 has a dirty-hack workaround for it.
