    ls: cannot access /dev/video*: No such file or directory

    Hi

    Few days before, sometimes worked and sometimes not.
    it seems don't recognize the webcam, really?
    From these two comments i would first check for a hardware issue such as a loose cable or other problem.

    I would also suggest running a LiveCD/USB and see if the webcam is recognised then.

    But my initial thoughts would be hardware.

    Kind regards
