I bought a webcam in order to extend my RPi capabilities.
The longterm plan is to have a Skype running on it also with video.
Skype doesn’t run on RPi … yet.
But maybe I am able to use something different.
This is how I did it:
1. Buy the Logitech C270 USB HD Webcam from Amazon.de.
2. install the software and add the kernel module
sudo apt-get install guvcview -y
sudo modprobe uvcvideo
sudo echo uvcvideo >> /etc/modules
3. Start X and the video software
Start -> Sound and Video
You have video 🙂
In my experience I have been able to choose 30 fps without problems.
The video is stable and fast…
Now I have only to figure out how to make video calls.
