Has anyone had any joy getting webcams that use the uvcvideo driver working
under FreeBSD? I'm looking at putting FreeBSD back on my laptop, and if the
webcam will work, that'll clinch it for me. Most of the results i've found
from trawling Google suggest that uvcvideo is basically not going to work,
but if anyone knows otherwise?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.
