Ubuntu and webcams

I’ve had some debugging to do for work for a part of our site that uses webcams but I’ve been a bit hazey about starting it because the last time I plugged a webcam in to a Linux box, 100 years ago, it was a bit messy. I decided to risk it as I’m too lazy to go home and get my laptop, and .. it .. just .. worked ..

Once again Ubuntu impresses me!
