That would be the Windows driver for the camera that supports VfW.

(AmCap and VidCap32 are example programs of how to work with a video
capture device provided as examples for programmers by Microsoft,
their simplicity and single purpose make them handy for testing just
the video support)

Try this download link if you do not want to compile it yourself:
http://www.camera-drivers.com/drivers/85/85104.htm (Do a virus scan on
the file first)

Run the applications from the command line (with a clean ~/.wine, see
FAQ for how to run from command line) and post output here / on
pastebin if it is long and hope someone that knows how to decode the
Wine video debug output sees this thread

This seem to have a vidcap32 download:

(These apps will not help your camera to work, but they might help you
to figure out whether Wine's video support is completely broken)
