What is the best way to test my webcam?

I have an Inspiron 1545.  Sometimes my webcam audio and video are out of sync on video chat.  I've used this webcam test site: http://mailvu.com/testCamera/TestYourWebCam.html and it plays back fine.  Everything is in sync.  I then go back to the chat site and it is out of sync.  I don't know if the chat site is bad.  Does Dell have a way for me to test my webcam?
