SOURCE: video playing in fast forward with no sound

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for all future recording.

Oh my, sounds like you accidentally recorded in "Time Lapse" mode (one of the specialized video features of your camera). Unfortunately, there's no way to convert the already taken video back to "Standard" video with sound, I'm sorry. However, you'll obviously need to set your camera back to standard mode for future videos. Press the "Function" button while in video mode. Then press left/right to select "Standard" video.

You need to change your video settings. You have it set for time lapse. Turn your camera to the video mode on the top of the camera and then turn the dial on the back of the camera to the size of video you desire.

SOURCE: My video plays in fast forward! why?

You will most likely have to remove the UCam software from add or remove progreams, reboot with the webcam disconnected and re-install webcam drivers and software.
Then if you must, reload your Ucam software.

Why won't my Nikon Coolpix b500 (red) turn on? When I just press the on button, it shows a green light also. What does this mean?

The best solution would probably be to check with your seller if it's still under warranty and let him solve the problem, but in case you want to be sure, go through the manual of your camera to see what the lights mean, if you don't have a manual you can find it here:

The best solution would probably be to go through the manual of your camera to see what all of the buttons do, because I have a feeling that you still didn't figure out the basics of your device :) If you don't have a manual you can find it here:

How to shoot a time lapse video with Nikon cool pix b500?

Tim lapse video does not make any sense to me. In general time lapse is a way to take photos at a specific interval. You can actually make a movie showing fast action in post process on your computer (using 3rd party software)
