I have what is probably an older Quickcam. Once the qc-usb driver was
installed, the only problem I hit was that of a competing TV card.
The Quickcam worked as expected (with mplayer) on one machine but
showed nothing on another. Turned out that the second machine had a
TV card (ATI TV Wonder) installed. Result was that I had to
explicitly tell mplayer (via an option for the the -tv command line
switch) which tv device to read from.
I don't know anything about camstream but if you have other camera or
TV devices on board, you might look to that as a potential conflict or
