Unhappy Problem with webcam
Hi All,

With a lot of pleasure I have been installing PC-BSD 8.2-x86 (KDE) some days ago and I have a problem with webcam wich I am unable to solve.
Details: I have been installing Debut NHC trough Wine (I did not see .pbi of "Cheese" or something like that) and it was working capturing screen only, nothing about webcam and Skype's test also does not finding the webcam.
After some days, update manager has been installing "Webcamd"; thinking this was the solution to set up every problem, but it is not.
The present situation is:
- Debut: does not working a too
- Skype: test shows green screen (microphone working very well)
- Kopete: webcam works
- Chatroulette: does not seeing webcam (as with option "default Camera" as with option "v4L1")
- Livemocha: microphone does not working

Maybe this output is useful:
Dati ottenuti da comando " usbconfig dump_device_desc dump_curr_config_desc "

ugen0.2: <WebCam Live! Creative Labs> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON

  bLength = 0x0012
  bDescriptorType = 0x0001
  bcdUSB = 0x0110
  bDeviceClass = 0x00ff
  bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
  bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
  bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0008
  idVendor = 0x041e
  idProduct = 0x4036
  bcdDevice = 0x0100
  iManufacturer = 0x0001  <Creative Labs  >
  iProduct = 0x0002  <WebCam Live!   >
  iSerialNumber = 0x0000  <no string>
  bNumConfigurations = 0x0001
Till now this is the only problem wich I have been unable to set up myself, hoping to get help over here.
Please, apologize me, I am Italian and I know that my English language is not very fluent.
Thank you for your kind attention.
