webcam and amsn for ubuntu

I was able to set up my webcam with amsn, but the problem is that the picture is very poor. I am wondering if there is something I should install to make it better? Also does anyone know if it is normal for amsn to put the webcam picture in a separate box from the conversation?

Things you need to give us. open terminal and type uname -a and post it.
then type lspci and post it . then type lsmod and post it. and then type dmesg and look at it.
this will tell use your distribution the kernel the hardware the drivers and the loaded drivers.
from there we can start.
