Increase webcam brightness on Mint

v4lctl bright 100%

This increased my webcam brightness enough. It’s still a bit dark, but better. Fix found on

Another thing to try is installing v4l2ucp and running it from the command line. This allows you to manually adjust video settings.

EDIT: You know what worked a lot better? Buying a new webcam for $5 and plugging it in.
