Solved Logitech C270 webcam settings and config

Specs: Linux i686 Ubuntu 12.04LTS, 2GB
Hi,
Have got my Logitech C270 webcam working out of the box for cheese, skype and it's working fine, sound as well.
But when I go to a website stream it is looking for my camera here; file/dev/video0
the trouble is everything else is say my webcam is here instead; file/dev/video1
So it works ok on Skype with those settings but other sites are looking for cam in the wrong place?

Please reply and let us know if our help worked.

✔ Best Answer
I have found the answer to my own question. In much searching of Google found that both FF and Chromium have problems with certain webcams not being found. It suggested changing back to Chrome as it still supported the Adobe Flash player. And hey presto it worked a treat.

guvcview is a good alternative to Cheese. Worth trying in your spare time imo.
