more about this webcam

Webcam

Like the WLAN card, the webcam is internally connected via USB. It uses a Bison chip that can be found in many notebook and Logitech webcams. A Linux kernel driver is available as an external source package, "linux-uvc-source"; it will be officially included starting with Linux kernel 2.6.27. The Debian distribution kernel 2.6.26 already includes this module; "modprobe uvcvideo" activates it. The webcam can be used, for example, by running xawtv with the command line argument "-d /dev/video0". However, recording from it, for example with ffmpeg, does not work since the camera does not seem to return correct image geometry information.
