even though you do not want to use another software - can you try another software to see if the problem occurs there as well? This helps to find out where the problem is. – Michael K Nov 30 '11 at 11:43

Why don't you give a try on other webcam softwares? guvcview and camorama are good alternatives. I prefer "guvcview", lightweight and highly configurable. The only thing "guvcview" misses is automaticaly take pictures every "x" seconds (which is there in Cheese).
