I've installed ubuntu last version and have problem with webcam, it's invisible for computer, all usb ports are active, but webcam seems to be dead. Tried 2 creative cams, no one of these were working. Getting message "webcams not detected"...any ideas?
Have you tried installing cheese ? Cheese is a software that allows you to take photos and videos with your webcam, with fun graphical effects.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cheese

if you haven't tried this yet... make sure you put your USB web cam into a POWERED USB port not just some dumb usb hub device. It may not have enough power to work??
