Works for me on an HP laptop with built in webcam :)
The default v4l1 didn't work, but libv4l1 does, with:

claude at zebimus:~$ dmesg | grep -i uvc
[   14.878523] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device HP Webcam (064e:a102)

I think #camera-help.pd could do without the [#scale_by] (as 640x480 * 2 
= 1280x960 which is big!), also it took a few tries to realize that 
inside [#camera] I have to select API first, then device, then 
resolution - easy when you know how.
