    Got my Webcam to work after I disabled this thing:

    Avahi will always start even if a .local domain is present

    The avahi-daemon package, which implements the mDNS "zeroconf" standard, formerly included a check to avoid running when a conflicting .local DNS domain is present, as it was reported that some ISPs advertise such a .local domain on their networks, leaving Ubuntu hosts unable to see names advertised on the local network (327362). In Ubuntu 9.10, avahi-daemon is started regardless.
    It is possible that this may cause other problems. If your network is configured this way, you can disable mDNS using the following command:

    sudo stop avahi-daemon
    sudo sed -e '/^start/,+1s/^/#/' /etc/init/avahi-daemon.conf
    Got this from this website.
