I am trying to make a usb webcam work on my rpi but it drives my nuts. I have Rpi 3 model B+ Also I've downloaded the newest raspbian image (stretch with desktop and recommended software). It's updated and upgraded. At first I installed fswebcam and it worked fine until I've installed uv4l for webrtc streaming. Now my webcam just doesn't work.

enter image description here

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsusb

Now I can't test my webcam even with a browser.
