I am using FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE on DELL Inspiron 15R N5010 which has
an integrated webcam.

Whenever I launch Cheese (webcam application) it says "No device
found". My /etc/rc.conf has a line webcamd_enable="YES" in it.

I also tried # kldload cuse4bsd referring to FreeBSD Forums but still
Cheese giving same error.

I also tried installing multimedia/v4l-utils port as hinted in
#freebsd but it also didn't work. Still the same error.

So how do I make Cheese access an integrated webcam of my system?

Thank you.
