If you're talking about sugar-emulator: All it does is letting Sugar run 
in a window while another "desktop" (or just a window manager) is 
already running. The "emulator" part is the name is misleading, we don't 
emulate any hardware. Sugar will behave exactly like it would when run 
as a regular desktop on the current machine.
In your case that means it should access any connected (or built-in) 
webcam quite fine.

If sugar-emulator is not what you're using, I'd be interested in what it 
is and where you got it from.
