Do any PLUGgers have recommendations for a good Webcam for Skype on 64
bit Ubuntu?

I have two logitech webcams (one c910 and another small one that hooks on the laptop screen) and both were recognized directly by recent 64 bits kernels (tested on 2.6.32 debian and custom 2.6.38).Both work with skype on debian 64 bits.

The dmesg lines. They show up in /dev/video0 and skype find them automatically. I do however need to restart skype when I plug the cam.
