I have got the following link from Mr knight-of-ni ( where Mr Isaac Connor has fixed the problem ). I have tested and found OK.

https://github.com/ZoneMinder/zoneminde ... f7e64d76ab

You will have to edit your monitor.php according to the Mr Isaac Connor's fix at the link

Open the Ubuntu terminal and run to open monitor.php for editing

sudo gedit /usr/share/zoneminder/www/skins/classic/views/monitor.php

Then delete the line 778 to 780 of the opend file for editing .( Which are highlighted in pink color in the file at link )

Then copy the codes highlighted in green in the file at link and paste at line 778 of the opened file for editing.

Then save monitor.php

Restart Zoneminder.

Then you can add the USB camera monitor as usual.

Thanks to Mr knight-of-ni for informing me about the Mr Isaac Connor's fix
