Recommend webcam and scripts for...


I would like to setup a live webcam on my website. I need to know what is a working webcam for linux that I can get images from it via a command line program. Also, what is such a command line program for Linux? I will be using bash scripts / cron to handle the automation of the webcam to upload images to my web server.
