    Is that the webcam? If so, Ubuntu has detected it. Any errors in your logs?

    yes that is the webcam , that is the way it has been detected by ubuntu.
    when i use any software like cheese it say webcam has not be found , that is it.
    if i used other generic webcam it works fine.
    so the problem it is the chipset of this webcam genius ilook 300.
    of course it work fine only on windows
