No way we can answer your question, since you don't provide any useful details. Things like "what version/distro of linux", "what kind of webcam", and "what chat rooms are you talking about", come to mind.

Lots of programs in Linux support webcams, though...

FWSHARROW, if your webcam works, that would then depend on the chat room, not on your operating system.

And it will also depend on the chat-room program being used, too.
