color problems with webcam under Ubuntu


I'm using a Veo Stingray webcam (gspca driver) under Ubuntu 7.04. Whenever I open up Camorama, Everything looks really dark and really blue. Whenever I apply the "color correction" filter, it changes everything to yellow (which looks more realistic than everything being blue), but everything's still really dark. None of the adjustments work. This problem happens with every webcam software I use. Why is everything so dark? Why won't the adjustments work?

Me again. :-P I just wanted to say that I got my cam working right. For those of you with the same problem, check this out:

I've got it set up so it looks halfway decent, but I have to figure out how to load these settings on startup. I've got an idea, though, so I'll let you know how things turn out.
