First of all, let's make sure that it ISN'T working. Open up Photo Booth and see if the light next to the camera comes on, if it does it works, otherwise you do have a non-working webcam. If you don't know where Photo Booth is (/Applications/), do a quick Spotlight search for it (Magnifying glass in the top right corner of the Finder).
Secondly, because I am extremely lazy. I will redirect you to another thread on the forum that I replied to with someone with a similar issue. The only difference is that he is on a Mini 9. Go there, read my post and try out the apps I mention, they may help you out, otherwise you are probably gonna have to do something reinstalling before it will work again. Hope it helps, Good Luck!
FYI -- Certain applications simply won't let you use it, they don't seem to have the right driver for it or they aren't looking in the right places for the driver. In this case there is really nothing anyone can do about it, as no one seems to have a solution for them yet. iMovie is one of the applications where the webcam simply doesn't work, a few others have given people headaches too. This is of course, to my knowledge.
