Good webcam for Ubuntu

27 October 2009 4 comments

I bought an HP KQ246AA 8.0 MP Deluxe web-cam from Amazon.  I tried it on Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala, Beta;  I also tried it on Ubuntu 9.04, Jaunty Jackalope.  For the price, it’s an excellent webcam.  It was plug and play.  Cheese and Skype automatically recognized it.  The only caveat is the blue light.   Inside the camera there is no barrier between the lens and the light.  So, basically everything you take a picture of or take video of has a light blue haze over it.  But, regardless it works great.  If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask.
