I purchased last week a Labtec Webcam Pro after reading that it was a good choice for Linux. I emerged the spca5xx driver (this is a ~amd_64 test machine) and all seemed fine. The camera is recognized and no error messages that I can see. When I run spcaview as user or root I get:

Spcaview version: 1.0.8 date: 01:07:2005 (C) mxhaard@magic.fr
Initializing SDL.
SDL initialized.
bpp 3 format 15
Using video device /dev/video0.
Initializing v4l.

and nothing but a black screen. I've also tried it with mplayer, videolan, and MythTV all with the same black or no screen.

I'm not sure that this is AMD_64 related and would like to know if any of you are running this camera on an AMD_64 and if so if you had any problems with it.
