I would keep it open until the issue is resolved; since we can still help. The reason you posted here is because you want to fix the problem.
I have a few ideas at this point that could resolve the problem.
What kind of firewalls do the said systems have? This could interfere with the communications.
Do a simple <10 second video recording and then close the program and attempt to watch the video playback. Is it choppy? (Except the bit of choppiness a webcam always has)
Also, try this from the *buntu forums:
Unplug the cam (if you can)
Type these in a Terminal (you may need to be Root):
sudo modprobe -r ov511
sudo modprobe ov511 force-palette=13
Or if you have a JPEG webcam you can try:
sudo modprobe -r ov51x-jpeg
sudo modprobe ov51x-jpeg force-palette=13
Note: If you don't know, It is safe to execute the first one, and test, then try the second one and test.
Next, I'd like to ask you if you have the restricted codecs on your system?
Type in a Terminal:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Lastly, your internet's upload speed is less than 1 MB. It could be throttled by the presence of both systems on the network attempting to do the communication. Connect 1 PC to another network and see if your experience differs.You should be OK with your internet now, but it can't hurt to try.
Another question: Is the Ubuntu system trying to communicate directly to a Windows system? Or is the other system a GNU/Linux system?
Please post back all and any result you get with above suggestions/questions.
Hope this helps you
