I researched the issue some time ago. My webcam and several others like HP
are affected by a faulty driver for this webcam, which should be the kernel
uvcvideo module. This is the reason why it happens in several progs, like
guvcview and cheese.

vlc does it's own thing and does not rely on the kernel driver. This is the
reason why it's unaffected.
