I was able to get my webcam - a Philips SPC 200NC - working by
following the instructions of Luigi Rizzo [1]. I just wanted to
thank him for his impressive work and the least thing I could
do was to grant his request and post a report.

I used the binary versions of the drivers posted on Luigi's site,
not the ports version. As I said, the webcam is a Philips SPC
200NC, picture available at [2]. The cam works nicely using the
gspca.ko. The picture is up-side down, which seems to be normal
for this webcam, if you belive the posts on linux related boards.
Apart of that, the picture quality is quite ok for this webcam,
(opost to what is sometimes said about the cam, there is NO
bluish cast!).

As I am not subscribed to this mailinglist, please contact me
directly if more information is needed. Thanks again for your
work, Luigi!
