Review of Linux Compatibility

The Logitech C920 is a webcam with HD resolution and is supported by Ubuntu since 10.04. (e.g. useable with Cheese or Skype). The USB webcam has the USB ID 046d:082d:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:082d Logitech, Inc.

and is controlled (as most of the Logitech webcams) by the UVC drivers. The corresponding module, i.e. uvcvideo, gets loaded automatically:

The C920 webcam provides pictures with 1280×720 if used with Skype:

      Bitrate: 2087/3641, TargetFPS: 30/30, CPU: 36, CpuFPS: 38/36, ReceiverFPS: 25/0/30

Due to the high resolution the camera can also be used to record videos. The webcam supports recordings of YUV 4:2:2, H.264 and MJPG if used together with Gstreamer:
