WWWcam is for grabbing, archiving, and Web publishing pictures from a video-device-based Webcam. For USB or parallel port webcams you can use the CPiA webcam driver. It simulates a /dev/video and supports nearly every webcam available. (as I could never test it because I have no usb-cam I would be lucky if you send a report if it worked or if there are any problems). You don't need anything for the static version of wwwcam to make it run.
