Best of Technical Support
Anyone done anything with web cameras under Linux? I have a need to do some video conferencing with some people in the US.

Many Parallel/USB web cameras are supported by Linux. You should pick a camera that you are interested in and search the web to make sure that camera is supported under Linux. Check out www.openh323.org/h323_clients.html for video conferencing support.

I guess the best for you would be to visit www.linux-usb.org (look for the Working devices list) and www.freesoft.org/software/NetMeeting. This HOWTO is about communicating between Microsoft Netmeeting and Linux. Lastly, video and conferencing in Linux are evolving rapidly and are subjects in constant improvement. These links may be good initial references for you to begin with, as they were for some people who just deployed a large Linux-based videoconferencing system.
