I think the real problem here is with the term video camera VS web
cam. I also asked about it because I wanted to know about the new 30
fps with 4 times more resolultion cameras (HD web cams) with linux and
also because they took skype out of the repos and many people say the
one on the skype site just gives a green screen with no picture.
