    For Windows:
    Works fine at 30fps after manually disable the automatic exposure in the Logitech driver settings (in German "Restlichtverstärkung").

    For Linux:
    Works only with 30fps if you disable the "automatic exposure" with guvcview. Otherwise it supports only 5-8fps.

    For example in (K)ubuntu type
    sudo apt-get install guvcview
    start guvcview
    disable the "Exposure, Auto Priority" (in German "Belichtung, automatische Priorität") in the image control settings and quit guvcview.

    Now start eViacam and the webcam works with 30fps :-) Tested on Kubuntu 10.04

    To disable the "Exposure, Auto Priority" option permanently download this packages from

    http://svn.quickcamteam.net/svn/qct/webcam-tools/branches/deb/packages/

    libwebcam0_0.2.0-1_amd64.deb  (or i386)
    uvcdynctrl-data_0.2.0-1_all.deb
    uvcdynctrl_0.2.0-1_amd64.deb  (or i386)

    and run in a shell:

    uvcdynctrl -d /dev/video0 -s "Exposure, Auto Priority" 0

    You can also create a shell script to run this command automatically each time you start the PC.
