To do normal Skype session (face2face) I'm using a USB video cam mounted on top
of the lid of my laptop which is good supported by the pwc kernel module:

Mar  5 09:39:57 current kernel: ugen4.2: <Philips> at usbus4
Mar  5 09:39:57 current kernel: pwc0: <Philips product 0x0329, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.03, addr 2> on usbus4
Mar  5 09:39:58 current kernel: pwc0: This camera is equipped with a Sony CCD sensor + TDA8787 (32)

I would like to have a bigger model to do the same with a group of
colleagues on my side, i.e. put the cam 3-4 meter away from the table.
Does someone knows a good model for doing that, wall or table mounted
and with a long USB cable, and supported in FreeBSD 8-CURRENT?
