The reason for this is that you have not switched your video source from
the AV digitizer to the QuickCam. You can do this with "Video Monitor".
I hope you have this program. If you dont, I can only supply you with the
norwegian version.
Open the "videosignal" in the "Monitor" menu. Set your digitizer source
to be "Connectix...." instead of "Build in....".
While you do this you can only have a 8bit (256 colors) monitor. After
you have switched videosource you can use a 16bit monitor again, and
still use your Connectix QuickCam.

Good Luck!
