which are the easier and best webcams to install?


Hardware - Apr 27 2010
answered
Question:From a long time i kept trying to install webcam, but i almost never were successfully. Which are the easiest webcams to use? For example, are there webcams working out of box even on Ubuntu live-CDs without installing? which ones?




Answer:I have put together a list of USB cams, of which I know to work under V4L1 and V4L2. When plugged in, they will appear as /dev/video0 or /dev/video1 depending how many you are using.


Cibox PC-390
Logitech 4000
Logitech Fusion
Philips SPC900NC
Hercules - Webcam Classic
Philips Vesta Pro Scan
Philips ToUCam Pro
Logitech - QuickCam Zoom
Logitech 5000 pro
Creative Live! Cam Optia
Logitech - Quickcam Pro 9000
The Mobility Lab - Webcam Messenger Pro
Philips - SPC1300
Logitech - QuickCam Vision Pro

There are others, however, I am not sure how well they work, yet.

Also a number of CCTV receivers that interface via USB.

Hope that helps.

i bought a simple one: Logitech c120 (i didn't want to spend more than 15eur on a webcam, at least for now) - it uses uvcvideo norm, and works excellently on Linux, just plugging it, without any need on compiling kernel modules, or anything alike.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
