Webcam instead of Rpi's (malos-eye)

Hi everybody, I just wondering if I can use my own usb webcam for malos-eye instead Raspberry Pi’s camera, cuz I don’t want to pay 20$ more for one more cam. I just wanna do shape and color recognition for my robot with matrix, but using of usb webcam seems to be more easy for installation on robot.

You should be able to use the webcam with malos _eye. Also note that malos_eye give you face detection and recognition but no shape or color detection, you would have to use some other tool for this.
