I managed yesterday to hook my "LifeCam VX-800" to my Raspberry Pi. It works just fine, but it's very very slow. I tried adjusting that by decreasing the sleep duration in the code, but that didn't work.
One of the suggestions I've heard lately is to overclock by increasing the clock speed above 800MHz. Is this OK? Couldn't this damage the Pi in the long run?
This slow speed got really anoying when I ran the face detection program. It took the camera around 12-15 seconds to identify my face in each frame.
