Is there any good software to record videos with a webcam?

Does anyone know of any good software to record videos with a webcam? I tired cheese but it does not work . I am look for software that will record good quality videos with my webcam. I have been having to use windows for recording videos with my webcam and I hate it! (I hate having to use windows, not recording my videos).

You can use mencoder. For example:

mencoder -o test.avi -ovc x264 -v tv:// -tv device=/dev/video0:driver=v4l2
Just hit ctrl-c when you want to stop.

Recording with audio example:

mencoder tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0:forceaudio:alsa -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=64:mode=3 -o test.avi
