fswebcam is a neat and simple webcam app. It captures images from a V4L1/V4L2 compatible device or file, averages them to reduce noise and draws a caption using the GD Graphics Library which also handles compressing the image to PNG or JPEG. The resulting image is saved to a file or sent to stdio where it can be piped to something like ncftpput or scp.


Latest version is fswebcam-20100622 tar.gz tar.xz
Older versions and other related files can be found here.

A public git repository is available here:

I installed it. But I wasn't paying attention... it's just a Command Line App. I wont have much use for it since I only like GUI Apps. It does run fine on my Fedora 13 System and I it in my Repo's if you like Command Line Apps...
