If you want to get a camera running with ros, wrapping player is usually not the way to go. Instead, you should try to find a ROS driver that supports the camera.

We also have a Logitech Quickcam Orbit/Sphere (vendor/product ID 046d:08b5), and got it running by modifying the uvc_camera package. We didn't release it yet because the clean way to go would be to integrate our hack into the uvc_camera package instead of releasing yet another fork.

I've uploaded a snapshot here:

git clone http://www.informatik.uni-osnabrueck.de/mguenthe/git/uos-camera_umd.git

Update: I've uploaded the current version of the package here: https://github.com/mintar/uos-camera_umd . It runs on Fuerte, Groovy, Hydro. Still a very bad hack. :-)
