Just thought I'd pass this on.
My daughter has recently been given a new webcam for her Mac, sent from my son in Canada. It's a Hue HD Webcam as advertised here:http://preview.tinyurl.com/ya58um6
We used it today to talk to him over Skype. I was curious about it so I borrowed it
and tried on my install of PCLinuxOS (using kernel 22.214.171.124.tex4)
You'll all be pleased to know that it worked as soon as I plugged it in. I tried it in wxcam, kopete and skype and all displayed the picture from it (kopete doesnt recognise my existing logitech webcam) although I haven't yet tried the inbuilt mic. The picture quality is superb. The cam can be connected either via a desktop base or directly into a usb port.
So if anyone is looking for a new webcam then they can check this one out.
