I just bought an HP Pavilion dv6 a few months ago. It's been working WONDERFULLY with Ubuntu on it. Everything has been working perfectly.

My problem is that, like all webcams, this HP TrueVision has an automatic light compensation thing going on. It automatically brightens the picture and adjusts for poor lighting. This, however, creates IMMENSE amount of lag during videochat sessions.

I can't seem to find a control panel to adjust this feature. Is there one that exists, has one been installed by default that I haven't found, or am I out of luck?

Thanks for the help in advance.
