"To begin, I needed a web camera that was fully
supported in Ubuntu. The installation had to be seamless, much like
the Apple experience. After doing some research on web camera
compatibility with Ubuntu, I decided to hit my local department
store and make a selection. The camera I purchased is a Logitech
QuickCam Chat. This camera carried a $20 USD price tag (it's $13.99
on Newegg.com at the time of this writing), so it was budget
friendly. The camera also included an earpiece with a microphone.
While this earpiece/microphone will do the job, I soon found out
that the mic must be held close to the mouth in order to be clearly
audible for the listener on the other end. To solve this problem, I
picked up a Logitech ClearChat Stereo headset with microphone for
about $18 USD ($16.99 on Newegg.com at the time of this writing).
That's all the hardware I needed for this job."
