Answer

Motion supports any camera which has a V4L (not V4L2 yet - it is being worked on) and delivers either YUV420P, YUV422 or RGB24 formats.

If the question is if the DMVC1300K is supported then the question is really - is there are driver for it for Linux. I don't know. Some - but not all - Philips cameras are supported by the pwc driver.

I would google for DMVC1300K and Linux as a start and then maybe ask on the pwc mailing list.

If you get an answer please consider comming back and add the camera to the WorkingDevices topic if it works.

Also consider updating WorkingWebcamsWithPWC
