kind of hard to debug without any logs or configs posted, but i have a 
working config that supports webRTC websites like for example.  
i am running 12.0-RELEASE as well.  here is the webcam i have:

$ sudo usbconfig|grep Camera
ugen0.2: <SunplusIT Inc Chicony USB 2.0 Camera> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST 
spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (500mA)

and i have enabled webcamd via rc.conf like so:
$ grep webca /etc/rc.conf

i also load cuse via /boot/loader.conf:
$ sudo grep cuse /boot/loader.conf

Note, this requires a web browser with support for webRTC, which firefox 
def supports by default once you grant permissions (iirc chormium also 
works by default).  I know this isn't super helpful for your rig - i 
think i have a c910 here i work i can try to reproduce this on later 
today, but just wanted to check the basics that everything is configured 
on your end correctly.
