You probably have two audio devices, now.  Your old on and the one in
the webcam.  You'll need to configure kopete to use the new one.  One
possibility is to configure KDE, or some lower level part of the
system, to use the new one.  Maybe you can open kmixer and choose the
audio device.  I don't recall how kopete deals with it.
