When recording a video with Cheese with a 1280x720 resolution, the image is blurry whenever there is motion (this might be a webcam limitation) but after a few seconds there are also massive framedrops. This results in a jerky video at best, where the audio is at times completely out of sync with the video.

When scaling back to 640x480 (the next 'best' thing), things are smoother (at least there are no massive framedrops). But 640x480 is not widescreen and not even close to HD, making Cheese useless for my aim of being able to create quick-yet-good-enough-looking headshot videos for online use.
