The line above is the entry for your camera. According to google, that
camera is a uvc device and I think it should be supported by the
uvcvideo module. Try the program guvcview to find out if it works.
However depending on your application you may need the v4l1
compatibility library, especially skype is one of those candidates.
Install the package libv4l-0 and then run the command
in a terminal to use the camera with skype.
