I suspect your webcam driver is using the V4L (version 1) API, thus you
need to install the PTLIB plugin for V4L1
In my PPA, the package's name for this plugin is

In repository it is:

No, under Ekiga 2, this webcam is working perfectly with V4L2 (and not with V4L). It's the same under Gstreamer application.  This really looks like a regression.

The error, in french, is :

Erreur lors de l'ouverture du périphérique vidéo CIF Single Chip    

Votre pilote ne semble prendre en charge aucun des formats de couleurs pris en charge par Ekiga.
Veuillez lire la documentation de votre pilote noyau pour déterminer quelle palette est prise en charge.

(Thanks for your answer, I will respond to the rest but I still need to test all your suggestions :-) )
