Hello,

I'm looking for a good hi-resolution webcam (between 1.3 and 2.0 Megapixels) to use with Skype in Ubuntu.

Based on your experiences, what are your recommendations?

AFAIK, the current Linux version of Skype can recieve hq video, but not send it, so getting s higher specced webcam may be a bit premature at this time

I'm looking for a good hi-resolution webcam (between 1.3 and 2.0 Megapixels) to use with Skype in Ubuntu. I'd recommend the Philips SPC 900NC. It has 1.3 Megapixels and it works pretty much instantly on any newer Linux distributions. I have no problem here whatsoever using it on my Ubuntu 7.10 system.

Besides, there was a similar thread a few months ago with other good suggestions ... Maybe you'd like to take a look:
