And this command?
ls /dev/video*

What does this command return? (it should return your model of webcam)

Is your webcam recognised? (try installing v4l2ucp, it will show you if your webcam is properly recognised, if so, the model is also visible)
lsmod | grep v4

Other problems? Try reading
or this:

Video4Linux can be the cause too. Googling on that subject may provide solutions too.

Good luck.
