I also have Cheese. I had only used it for capturing stills so I quickly ran a test.
Only resolutions below 640*480 worked fine for me.
The first 20sec under 352x288 were not usable but then started recording nicely. I had firefox running with a heavy web page and another application in the background so that might have cause some sluggishness.
I guess if everything is closed 640*480 will be also usable. The max resolution I am afraid may require too much processing power (or is this GPU dependent too?).
The web-cam works perfectly with skype and this is what I use it primarily for. Bottom line I am happy with it
perhaps a benchmark test under windows will reveal whether this is OS or hardware driven problem.
Exactly! Cheese works video for 320*240, but fails with 640*480.
Instead wxCam works well video for 640*480!
What about Luvcview? No video reording in my machine.
