    You should be able to configure which device is used on the site. Your best bet is to simply ask them how that is done if you cannot find an options button anywhere.

    Flash is very popular for applications like these on the web and if they are using that, there should be an options button where you can select your preferred device from among those available, so your external vs built-in cam.

    Right clicking on the cam display window when flash is used should open a menu that gives you the option to do this too I believe. So you might try that.
