+wxCam is a webcam application for linux. It supports video recording (in an
+avi uncompressed and Xvid format), snapshot taking, and some special commands
+for philips webcams, so you can also use the program for astronomy purposes.
+It supports both video4linux 1 and 2 drivers, so it should work on a very
+large number of devices.
+This requires xvidcore, CImg, mjpegtools, and wxWidgets
+(only tested with wxGTK).
