This looks a bit cheesy to me. It is probably a driver problem.
Have you searched online for drivers? Microsoft may have them on

I have had Cheese working on both Xubuntu vers 11.10 & 12.04.
Cheese version used is 3.4.1. The video cam is an old Logitech Quick
Cam IM connected by USB - 046d:08d9 at /dev/video0 - resolution is
set at 640x480. However, I have not been able to get it to work in
Skype [vers 2.20.35 - Oneiric] with either 11.10 or 12.04 Xubuntu.
The video cam is recognised but a "test run" in Skype gives nothing.
Using Cheese to record me looking intently at a computer screen is
not of much use - the idea was to contact grand-children via Skype
with Linux [Windows XP - with Skype works!]. I also need help.
