i had hp mediasmart webcam and it does work, but video recording disables the "Stop Recording" button -_- and taking pictures, the resolution is down to 320 x 240 and it's unchangeable.
i've been getting issues with the hp camera switching resolutions (unchangeable) by itself from 176 x 144 to 320 x 240 and then to 640 x 480 (<- this one i want) but luckily i found it at 640 today!
so all i am asking for is a webcam program that is decent and can take pictures / videos. live stream/upload/extra web features are really not necessary for what a simple web cam program.
video compression would be nice
since hp has video compression
