webcam under linux

After lots of trials and errors, found: to capture from webcam:


To get a video:

mencoder -fps 6 tv:// -tv driver=v4l:width=320:height=240:\
fps=6:device=/dev/video0:hue=-40:saturation=-40:contrast=-40 \
-ovc lavc -o test.mpg

To view the result:

mplayer -fps 3 test.mpg

I still have to find how to set correct fps on input and output, and to tune brightness parameters.
