When I use my webcam on websites Eg: it's really zoomed in, although when i use it on applications such as Cheese, Kamoso, or Skype, it's absolutely fine. I've tried reinstalling cheese, reinstalling ubuntu all together, no luck.

Any help would be appreciated, it's only since 12.04 that this has happened,

My system is an Acer Aspire 5742 and it's the built in webcam.

Check your camera with the this site, for example.

If the image problem is the same, then this is a Flash related issue.
