The same problem was reported here some time ago, and a solution was given.
For good reasons, the decompression code has been removed from the pwc
module. As compression is only needed for higher framerates and resolutions,
this is not really a problem. Unfortunately, the module defaults to
compression level 1, and outputs a grey picture then.
To deactivate the compression, put something like "options pwc
compression=0" into /etc/modprobe.d/local or whereever fedora thinks it
