I can't use my camera in Google hangout, I can share desktop in Google Hangout and it works fine but camera never works, it looks like this

Google Hangout

I have also tried using Cheese and i also just get a back screen. The light beside my camera is on when using Google Hangout or Cheese.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
