Webcam error

I have been trying to get my webcam to work on my Debian system.  When i try 
to execute the webcam command i get this error:

Hubert:/home/jon# webcam
reading config file: /root/.webcamrc
ioctl: VIDIOCMCAPTURE(frame=0;height=120;width=160;format=4): Invalid argument

ioctl: VIDIOCMCAPTURE(frame=0;height=240;width=320;format=15): No such file or

Has anyone seen this before ?  And do you have any suggestions ?
