Hi guys,

my webcam refuses to work with any application: skype, guvcview, cheese, etc.

The webcam is supposed to be supported: Microsoft Lifecam VX-5000

When I run guvcview, I get the following: 'Guvcview error: Unable to allocate Buffers'. If I run gstreamer-properties and I try to test it, I get: Video for Linux 2 (v4l2): Could not get buffers from device '/dev/video0'

I've been trying different things, but I feel I'm going around in circles. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.
