Cheese takes a photo but interprets it as a video and does not save it. 


How reproducible:Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Take a photo with cheese
2. Wait for the error message
3. Check to see if photo has been saved in the files. 

Actual results:The photo is not saved and the error message that the video can't be played by the webcam. 

Expected results:Photo should be taken normally. 

Video taking works. Photo taking does not work. 
This bug is also in Fedora 21. It was fixed in version 20.
