I have had good results using the usb_cam driver on my Logitech Quickcam
I did not have to edit the source code, but I did need to provide a new
pixel format as a parameter. Try using this launch file:
<node pkg="usb_cam" type="usb_cam_node" name="cam">
<param name="video_device" value="/dev/video0"/>
<param name="pixel_format" value="yuyv"/>
