    Re: Webcams for Linux

    In the Feb issue of Linux Journal, Marcel Gagne' ( cooking with Linux guy ) wrote an article about using webcams and stuff. He wrote that he was using one of CPiA chipset and the other one that use ov511 modules. I don't know what the heck is that since I don't own a webcam ....

    That remind me, I'm seriously lacking behind technologically and toys.... :'(

    I've got quite a few of the old color quickcams (logitech) at work, and they are *super* easy to setup for single shots and cuseeme typestuff (with qseeme). Haven't found a good streamer app for it yet though. I'd check the kernel docs in USB support and the Vid4Lin stuff to see what seems to be the best supported or easiest to setup if you are looking for a newer USB camera.

    You might want to check out cooking with Linux guy article. It's excellent and he used USB webcam for his test. He has also shown how to compile and stuff for a few applications as well....
