Cheese is indeed a lovely application, it turns those webcams bought for VoIP calls into fun toys. All in all I personally find it the most interesting (and well executed) desktop application in... hum, in a while.
The fact that it has been broken into Ubuntu for so long lead me to stop using it though. Its popularity can be seen by the number of duplicates of the bug that has been keeping people from using it.
FWIW I also experience the jerky (i.e. low frame per second) video using it, though that is probably due to problems in the underlying stack, it does impact the experience of it. In any case, I hope cheese's popularity will help gather motivation to improve the whole stack.
