Webcameras

Webcams normally use the video for linux (v4l) framework. The Ubuntu kernel has support for v4l compiled into it.

You may also need a driver for your camera. If it does not just work when you start e.g. xawtv, a good starting point to look for your camera is: http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/ (use the search field with your manufacturer name). Some nice people have also made an application to build the latest driver for some webcams: EasyCam. For more help see the Webcam page.
