Just a couple of points:
1) Make sure any webcam you get is UVC compliant. Logitech list their
UVC webcams at
There is a more general list at
2) Its the device ID that is important. It has been known for
manufacturers to use the Model numbers for different ID's, usually in
different countries. My C250 has ID 046d:0804 and was bought in the UK.
