Webcam support is still really iffy in BSD at this point. Once we move 
to 8.0 you may see some limited support, but I'm not sure its fully 
functional there as well. I know some folks are working on it on the 
FreeBSD side at the moment, and we'll all be eager to see it supported 
in the near future :)
