The spca5ss webcam driver is included in Ubuntu. This driver supports at
the moment 205 webcams see http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html :-). I
don't know which version was included in Breezy, but for sure it was
less webcams. Unfortunatly, spca5xx was broken in Breezy and I don't
know how it will be in the next release. Anyway spca5xx supports a lot
of webcams and it is easy to compile from source :-) See
I hope this information helps.
