As you had mentioned i did use libv4l, and finally my cam -- logitech
quickcam e2500 started working with camorama. However it still doesnt work
with PD???? PD always crashes when i'm using the #camera-help.pd while
selecting the cameraa input device.
More detials posted in this thread:

Could there be an issue with the OS (ubuntu 9.04) or while configuring ??
I'm totally lost.
