there is no official release files for uvcvideo, i only find it via svn, so based on this instructions u need to enter this command to install it.

1. open terminal (lets say you already have a folder name linuxzip in ~/linuxzip)

[planet@fedorasal linuxzip]$ svn checkout svn://
A trunk/uvc_ctrl.c
A trunk/uvc_queue.c
A trunk/uvc_video.c
A trunk/uvc_v4l2.c
A trunk/uvc_compat.h
A trunk/uvc_driver.c
A trunk/uvcvideo.h
A trunk/Makefile
Checked out revision 125.
[planet@fedorasal linuxzip]$
2. then
[planet@fedorasal linuxzip]$ cd trunk/
3. type make and lastly make install (as root)
[planet@fedorasal trunk]$ make
