I don't want to spend too much money, but I can get them online for pretty cheap. What's a megapixel that will work well?


You want at least 10 megapixel. if ur on a budget at least a 7 mp will do the job. check out logitech, they are a good/reliable brand

I have a few that I would recommend and they have great price tags:

Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 with 1080p Video

*Full HD 1080p video recording and smooth HD 720p video calling with Logitech Fluid CrystalTM *Technology; 1-click video uploading to Facebook and YouTube

*Fluid HD 720p video calling with Logitech More HD Technology

*5 MP HD sensor, precision Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus and intelligent auto light correction for crystal clear video and brilliant 10 MP photos

*Dual built-in noise-cancelling mics let friends hear you in rich, clear HD-quality stereo

*Works with Logitech VidTM HD, SkypeTM, YahooŽ Messenger, Microsoft LiveTM Messenger


Only actual pixels count. Software interpreted numbers are bogus.

Also note that a full 1080p display is only 2 megapixels, which kind of sets the top end of what's actually useful for video. A more typical video window size is 640x480 (0.3 mp) or less.
