Hallo
Is it possible to install drivers for all the Webcams listed on the site http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html to use those cams out of the box?

There needs to be a program that will detect and download the correct driver when the webcam is first connected to the computer. It needs to be plug and play.

We also need an application that can record the webcam feed into a video file and then be able to put that video file into a editing program like kino or upload it to a web site like youtube.

This is a really important issue to solve as many windows and apple OS users can already do these things on their OS's without any trouble at all. We need the same thing for Ubuntu.

2008-07-28 10111: Also want to work on this but don't know how working on blueprints works. So maybe someone can introduce me or give me a link where I can read about it?
