Default UVC cameras

Somewhere I've read that a camera must be UVC conformant to qualify to use
the Vista label on the package. It wasn't an authoritative source.

Recently I put an inexpensive camera on Squeeze and got a local image in
Skype. Oddly the remote image was OK without the camera but garbled with
the camera connected.

Can anyone explain this observation or cite pertinent documentation?

Thanks, ... Peter E.

Not enough info to help, really, but what about your bandwidth?

Cheers, Eike

Yep, it's a bit vague description. I would also test the webcam with
another program like Kopete or Ekiga, to discard any issue with Skype.

Better, try luvcview or guvcview, specialised programmes to just grab
the output of the camera. They also allow to alter the settings, maybe
you can fix things.
