Linux command-line instructions to see your face on screen :) I'll have to digg more to get how you stream this info elsewhere.

See Syntek readme for the proper way to get an stk webcam to work

The Very Short Form:

<(^_^)> ~$: mplayer tv:// 

Detailed Form:

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l:width=640:height=480

You _can_ make it smaller, not bigger on the CLI

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:fps=30:device=/dev/video

?? Wonder if it makes a difference ??

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=320:height=240:fps=25:outfmt=uyvy:device=/dev/video0

I'll tell you one thing: the Manual entry for Mplayer is... Long.

Now, try this one :)

mplayer tv:// -vo aa -monitorpixelaspect 0.5

It's always worth your time reading the manual...
