I solved it on my own!! GO ME!

For those who want to know:

Like i said before i use the HP 2133 Netbook that already came with Linux SuSE 10

so you would do the following:

Code:
1.  go to computer
2.  go to more applications
3.  go to YaST
4.  go to System Manager
5.  Search UVC
6.  Install
7.  get adobe flash player and install
THATS IT!! Thats all i did

I tested this out on my facebook page. You know where you can take a picture using web cam or video with web cam? Well i clicked on it and it told me i needed adobe player, well it came with 3 types for linux and i didnt know which one so i did all three! haha you maybe way smarter then me but after i installed all three it asked if i would allow facebook to use the webcam, i accepted and it worked!! the webcam mystery has been solved!! BY A NEWBIE!!!

I hope you will figure this out yourself as well if you could work out webcam.
But still you will need vlc player or mplayer to play videos. Those will play most of the video types.
