Question Logitech QuickCam IM: cheese as root OK, but not as user!?!


I have a Logitech webcam:

$ lsusb
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 046d:08d9 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam IM/Connect

My system:
Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five)
Linux 4.11.4-200.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jun 7 18:28:00 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Running 'cheese' as regular user, the cheese window opens and it seems to show the webcam video capture for a fraction of a second, but then displays "There was an error playing video from the webcam".

However, if I run 'cheese' as root, then all is OK.

Any idea what config or setting is missing?
