which type of webcam is it?

Assuming you have a notebook. Most of these are USB Based ones, e.g. usb2.0 ones

e.g.

Code:
ASUS-G75VW roman # lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1bcf:2885 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. ASUS Webcam
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 13d3:3362 IMC Networks Atheros AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04d9:a070 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc.
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 18d1:4ee7 Google Inc.
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


this is my webcam => Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1bcf:2885 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. ASUS Webcam

starting point

kernel => check what you need for your camera

I think the internal or in built webcam is not detected by the kernel
Code:

localhost ~ # lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04ca:7036 Lite-On Technology Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 138a:0017 Validity Sensors, Inc. Fingerprint Reader
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


I believe bus 001 Device 004 : ID 04ca:7036 is my webcam
it must be a UVC 1.00 device Integrated Camera (04ca: 7036)
