Webcam doesn't work after upgrade to Ubuntu 8.10

My webcam worked with every application in Linux Mint6. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 and find that the input from the webcam looks like a green TV without horizontal lock in Camorama and Skype. However it works perfectly with Cheese.

Any ideas gladly accepted.

What webcam? What kernel was Mint6 using? Some webcam drivers were broken by a kernel upgrade, so you may need to re-install the camera drivers.
