XAWTV

Take a look at "webcam" in the xawtv package. It should be able to do what you need. Here is a sample config file:


[ftp]
host = localhost
user = username
pass = password
dir = /var/www/html
file = webcam.jpg
tmp = imageup.jpg
local = 1

[grab]
device = /dev/video0
width = 320
height = 240
delay = 0
input = camera
quality = 100

Works great with my camera.
Best of luck,
MH
