just an idea: browse the spca5xx list of supported webcams, as this driver should work with the v4l api and therefore with player/stage (via the camerav4l driver)
as a rule of thumb, I'd say most cheap usb webcams should work: I purchased two of 'em (generic chinese brand) in the last year and they both worked instantly (out of the box support with recent kernels, need to compile and load a module with older versions)
(as a side note, I'd recommend all OS X users to take a look at the MACAM driver, which incorporates some of the spca code: using a 10$ cam instead of a much pricey firewire one could turn out a valuable option ;-) )

After a mad search through the documentation, I am wondering what USB 
cameras will work with Player 2.0.0 ?  I would really appreciate to hear 
what USB cameras people have working with Player because we are trying 
to purchase compatible hardware.


Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
