Is there a program for Ubuntu that will let me simply view the video from my Logitech QuickCam Messenger? My computer seems to find is and all that fine, I just don't have a program to view the stream.
Thanks,
Justin

Not sure what you're really asking for, if you're just asking for like a snapshot program, there always is Cheese, it's in the repositories, try the following:

sudo apt-get install cheese

I just want something to view the video to make sure the camera is working correctly. I am using with a code I am writing and the output is sometimes bad. I wanted to see if that was my code of the camera. I'll give cheese a try.

Try VLC.
