I recently set up a webcam for my wife's new home day care
business, using a Logitech Quick Cam Express.  This produces
320x280 color, which for us is a reasonable compromise
between resolution and bandwidth requirements.

This is a Video4Linux device.  I use the webcam utility from
xawtv to repeatedly upload images to the web server, and a
web page with some JavaScript to refresh the displayed image
every 10 seconds or so.  That works nicely, no flickering.

BTW anyone commuting to SV and looking for child care?  :-)
