    Cheese Webcam no longer detected

    I'm on Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit.

    I went into in Cheese webcam to Edit -> Preferences to change the way the webcam records/displays but when I changed it, it wouldn't display anything. On trying to go back into Preferences the "preferences" option is greyed out. I've tried both restarting cheese and reinstalling it - but it will no longer detect my webcam.

    It has also stopped my webcam working in things like skype.

    Any suggestions? :/

    Rebooted but that didn't work.

    Plugged it into a different USB so it would detect it again and that worked o.o
