Watchport v2 webcam not working slackware 13

I am fairly new to this and I cannot get a watchport V2 webcam in working slackware 13, if anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful, as I cannot seem to find any other info anywhere.
It seems to be recognised;

Linux video capture interface: v2.00
usbcore: registered new interface driver vicam
usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1608, idProduct=4001
usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 3-1: Product: Watchport/V2 USB Loader
usb 3-1: Manufacturer: Inside Out Networks
usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice


Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1608:4001 Inside Out Networks [hex]

If someone could point out what I am missing that would be great!

try installing guvcview from SlackBuild
it's a good application to test your webcam
