IS the webcam using USB?
Is the webcam visible to the operating system (OS)? I always recommend troubleshooting audio and video sources outside of OBS (that is, OBS not even running). Make sure you source (webcam in this case) working properly at OS level, then try and add into OBS
Then, have you read the Sources Guide at

Are you using your motherboard's USB port? I was able to capture the webcam image only on the motherboard input. The USB port of the case does not appear in the image. Try the motherboard input.
