Webcam + usb extension cables

If I have a webcam with a 3rd party usb extension cable am I going to see any significant delay/out of sync audio in a video conference due to the extension?

Just don't string a bunch of extensions together.

Q1: How long of a cable can I use to connect my device?
A1: In practice, the USB specification limits the length of a cable between full speed devices to 5 meters (a little under 16 feet 5 inches). For a low speed device the limit is 3 meters (9 feet 10 inches).
