Normally, when you go to a site which allows web cam chat (Some examples would be chat roulette or omegle, just Google them and you'll find them) and you have a functioning web cam, a box will come up which will ask you if you want to use your web cam. If you don't have a web cam or yours is broken it won't work, but if you do have one, when the box comes up just click on the button with the green check mark. After that your web cam should start working.
