Description of problem:
My webcam works with ekiga and skype but not with gstreamer and cheese... what's wrong? It doesn't work with gstreamer-properties when I hit the Test button, "Video for Linux (v4l): Could not negotiate format". Tested with the build-in web camera of Sony Vaio VGN-FE41Z on Fedora 8.
