1) you have Oracle's closed-source version of VirtualBox (not the OSE version 
provided by standard Fedora repos)

2) your VirtualBox is configured correctly and you can verify that it supports 
USB devices

3) you have installed the webcam driver under Windows virtual machine

then the webcam *should* work under the Windows VM, regardless of any support 
from the Linux host. The signal from the webcam should just be passed-through 
to vm, without interference from the host OS. Can you verify this first?

Also, can you find some friend with a "real" Windows system and verify that the 
webcam is working there? You don't want to chase faulty hardware...

HTH, :-)
