NEWBIE Video Drivers - Mint 10 LXDE on Asus W5000


I've been having some problems with online videos and my webcam. Somebody suggested that it's something to do with video drivers. What drivers do I need to install and how?

The output of
Code:
lspci
gives me:

First it would be helpful to know what kind of problems you are having.

Okay. BBC iPlayer doesn't work at all, and my webcam just doesn't show up in Skype. Some other videos online don't work too (mainly TV catch-up). Normal YouTube videos are fine, but not ones like this

Streaming radio doesn't work either though, so it may be another problem. I don't know.

I doubt the BBC iPlayer problem has anything to do with your video drivers. Your card is a very common and well supported Intel integrated chipset, so most likely the drivers being used now are the best there is. Are you using the latest Flash player?

As for the webcam, the output of lsusb will show the model name and ID of the camera.

I have the latest Flash. Is there anything else I need to install/update to make iPlayer work?

I don't know for sure because I can't use the iPlayer at all. I'm not in the UK so it won't allow me to view any videos, but the player itself will load. Youtube also won't let me watch that video you linked earlier because of the country I am in.
