I can cam up in cheese and skype, but can't in ICANHAZCHAT. I can even see the other cams. What do I do? I have a gateway laptop (basically acer) with a suyin 1.3mp.

That requires wine and many cam. I can't even get to the configure part once the cam is broadcasting. – DevinTodd Mar 16 '12 at 18:35
All it requires is Adobe Flash and a webcam, but not wine. If you don't have flash installed, you can't use that chat. – mikewhatever Mar 16 '12 at 19:08
