I hadn't used the webcam in a bit and it wasn't working! "In use by another program" was the problem. Idiot programmers should have a) programmed in what was using the webcam and b) the option did I want to stop that application and use it in the one I was trying when the message popped up. Anyways, after an hour and a half looking through my system and online for solutions I found the following wbsite that helped.

The program it said to download helps you find the culprit program, Flashplayer in my case, and helps disable it. Am posting this to help others not take as long as I did to fix!
