Cheese used to work perfectly well (f23) on my laptop and I have not used it for some time but have since performed a clean install of f27 and now upgraded to f28.

When Cheese opens, I see the webcam image for a moment and the light comes on and then the error "There was an error playing video from the webcam" claims the screen.

I tried a basic search for cheese on my laptop and cannot find any log files to diagnose further, for that matter, whereabouts in the system are webcam settings?
