Webcam resolution on Raspberry Pi


I am playing with my new Raspberry Pi. I attached a "Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass" webcam , and find that the webcam works at resolution 352x288, but will not work at 640x480. This problem shows up in motion, mjpg-streamer and fswebcam, so I presume it is a kernel/USB camera driver issue.

It works just fine on Fedora 16(x86_64).

Arch info:
Linux alarmpi 3.1.9-20-ARCH+ #1 PREEMPT Mon Jun 11 05:55:47 UTC 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux
libusb-compat 0.1.4-1
libusbx 1.0.11-2
usbutils 005-2 (I just listed all pacman entries with USB in them)

Arch supports only x86 processors, for Arm support, please use
