Yes. a webcam. I need it for my desktop which is about 10 yrs old.

Thanks. I’ll see what I can find in the Logitech brand

The other option is just your phone. I use my Android phone connected over USB on a little stand. There’s an app for the phone and an open source program for the desktop and it works like a charm. I already had everything necessary so it was my favorite option

This is what I use, has worked on all distros. Currently on Fedora 34 Logitech C920s PRO Full HD Webcam with Privacy Shutter
