FSwebcam package - cannot instal or find in opkg

  • When I try to install fswebcam with opkg instal fswebcam I get error:

    *Unknown package 'fswebcam'.
    Collected errors:

    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package fswebcam.*

    Of course I did an opkg update millions of times yet I still can't find the package. I even looked trough the whole list of packages and fswebcam is just not there. What am I doing wrong?
