Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

So it seems that if I want to use this cam, I'm going to use the Windows XP side, uh?
Oh well!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Many Logitech webcams work under Linux. Unfortunately, this C920 is not one of them => http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/ (indeed not listed as working and at least not tested).
Main desktop: Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy 64bit - MATE 1.8.1
(i5 2400@3.7GHz - 16GB DDR3 - HD6770 w/radeon driver - SSD+RAID1)
Safer than Dropbox

That's not true. I just bought the C920, plugged it into my Laptop and was able to instant record videos.
It works out of the box! In Ubuntu 12.04 from the year 2012. So Linux Mint is even better in hardware recognition and should work pretty well!

No driver, no configuration, not to do anything. Plug it and use it!

Here my first YouTube Video with that webcam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpCYH6r4ECI

But be aware, it's German ;)

So maybe you should contribute to the community on http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/ to report this device as tested and working... I do not own this model, only a C525 which is listed :)
