My webcam works in Cheese but not on google chat

Asked by chaz holden on 2012-01-31

Hi, I'm fairly new to ubuntu. I'm running 10.04 on an HP Pavilion dm1. My webcam has been working just fine whether through cheese or on google chats, but until recently (since i did an update through the update manager) it has not been working through google chats. it still works on cheese though. i can't tell if its a driver issue or something else. any tips?

Does it work better in Oneiric liveCD?

I haven't tried it, and i haven't had luck locating that particular program. where can i get it?

is there a way around this without changing OS versions?

The newer version has newer kernel and drivers. May help

Can you help with this problem?
