Hi yoe, it sounds like you haven't added yourself to the webcamd group. Try:

pw groupmod webcamd -m yoe

BTW, welcome to the forum and congrats on your first post!

Instead of running webcamd with the -B flag (background) Try without that command to see exactly what is going on.
When you run it in the background you lose verbosity. Use your virtual terminals(Ctlt-Alt-F2,Ctl-Alt-F3 ect.) to fire up pwcview

There is also this:
chmod 666 /dev/video
