Webcam Devices supported by Generic Linux Drivers

Many recent, as well as currently available, webcam models are supported, or likely can be supported, by one of the two generic Linux drivers:

  • See gspca devices for a list of supported devices under this framework

Other Webcam Devices supported by Specific Drivers

(alphabetized by driver)
