Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 Webcam – Logitech for the win – S 5500
Wanting a webcam for my machine to use on skype (Yes, skpye does work on Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit) I wasn’t sure which to buy. So I didn’t get any, and just got a mic.
Well later one of the office junkys said he had a spare and gave it to me. A Logitech S 5500, good little web cam.
I dauntingly pluged it in, wondering what Ubuntu had for me.. Nothing happened.. I opened up Skype, clicked on preferences, video devices, and…. THERE I WAS! Looking back at me, a live video feed. I plugged in the web cam, and it worked. No config, no fuss, no notification, just works. Quickly video called a person, works perfect. Even the mic on it works (and better than the sole purpose one I got eariler).
Very happy. Go the Logitech QuickCam S5500!
