software webcam

I have a philips pcv750k webcam and I have some problems when I use it with 640x480 resolution. Does anyone know any good software for using it?

Do you use a SPCA driver?

Have a look at the spca5xx project here or in

source forge

The first link includes utilities to test your camera as well as utilities to help create the driver.

If after all this time you still have the camera, you may want to have a look.

If you've already solved your problems with the webcam, it would be nice if you post your solution so other people in the same situation can benefit from it.
