The Philps brand line of USB webcams are some of the most fully featured & best supported webcams in Linux today.
They work well on both x86 and PPC based boxes, and the range of available software allows you to do everything from taking snapshots, to performing astronomy experiments, to making movies with sound!
It is lacking support for creating movies, however it does allow you to take timed snapshots with varying resolutions and fps, all with the click of a button. It has more features and functionality than any of the other choices out there, however the interface is incredibly unintuitive (in my opinion), its lacking in user-friendly documentation, and getting it setup can be a painful & frustrating experience.
So, at the very least, it will allow you to verify that you've set up your camera correctly. However, it does what i need it to do, namely, create movies from the camera stream.
