If your webcam seems slow in Linux when using it with OBS, Cheese, or other software, this post I just wrote may interest you.

@e0ipso Your menu on the website doesn't work on my Android phone with Privacy Browser, nothing happens when I tap on it.

@hund Thanks for the feedback! I will look into it.

@hund @nebunez I finally got around fixing that. Thanks again.

Coincidentally, I just downloaded guvcview earlier today to try to solve the same kind of problem. Unfortunately, even with guvcview my webcam is only 640x480 @ 20fps. I guess the camera on my Asus Zenbook is just that low quality.
