View Full Version : Reccomended webcams

April 27th, 2008, 09:32 AM
Id like to get a webcam for use with Hardy but am a bit wary about what is and is not compatible with Ubuntu. I have seen quite a few posts about people having problems with various webcams.

Can anyone recommend a good webcam that works out of the box?

You can find a here list of web cameras that work in Ubuntu and also work with Skype (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeWebCams), in case you want to use the camera with it.
