    Most webcams work with uvc. http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/

    For your kind information.those drivers are already in BT4 as they comes by default with 2.6.26 & above.

    Out of curiosity: why do you want to use your webcam on a pentesting distro? Do you want to videochat with relatives (not really backtrack's aim), or do you have a motion detection app to protect your laptop? (which would actually be awesome at cons, just imagine a siren going off as soon as someone nears it)

    Code:
    mplayer tv://

    This doesn't work.
    Code:
    mplayer tv://
    However, specifying fps does.
    Code:
    mplayer -fps ## tv://
    Just replace ## with however many Frames Per Second you want.
    If you're not root, then type sudo before mplayer.

    I also don't think that mplayer is designed for video chat, but, correct me if I'm wrong.
    Don't know why anyone would want to video chat in BT, but w/e, who am I to judge?
