Ok i know its a bit of general question, but does anyone know of cheap
webcams that just work in ubuntu. they have to be easy to set up.

Ps i have found some apps in android that let you put a URL in let you view
from there on phones home screen. So how would this work, would i have to
set up some sort of streaming website for this?
