I have difficulty with my webcam and Skype. I can see the other person but she can't see me. From a previous thread: Are you sure your camera isnt working? Supported hardware drivers are in the kernel usually. Test: press alt+f2, type gstreamer-properties go to the video tab and see if your camera is listed as a device. If yes, press the test button. This test was OK. I could see my face on the screen.
Quote: Ah, the Skype camera thing. Launch it this way: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
I tried this. It launches Skype OK, but the little window that should show what my webcam sees, appears full of black and white static.

I'm using a basically vanilla Lubuntu 11.04 My Logitech E 3500 webcam works fine with Cheese. I have just installed Skype, but my voice isn't picked up on the test call, and no video either (the webcam light remains off). I've tried logging off and into Skype.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my dv2000 hp latpop. I also installed the Beta version of Skype. But when I test webcam in skype the light of the webcam glows but I do not see image on the test screen. the test screen remains back. Could someone suggest what could be the problem and a possible solution?PS: The webcam works fine with "Cheese"
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop computer. In general things work pretty well but I cannot get the webcam to work in Skype. It's a Zebronics webcam, not sure of the model number. I installed Cheese to see if it shows videos from the webcam connected to the computer and it does. In Skype preference I can see that Skype looks for the webcam in /dev/video0 but apparently it can't find anything there.
I wish there was some client program in Ubuntu/Linux which supported both audio call and video chat on the yahoo network. Kopete supports only video and Gyache is not compatible with the new Yahoo 10 protocol or whatever it is. Extremely frustrating for someone who is trying to get others to use Ubuntu instead of Windows.
I'm a newbie to Ubuntu (9.10) and have been unable to get the webcam to work in Skype. It works just fine in Cheese.

i am trying to video chat with my logitech C200 webcam but it does not work with skype or empathy. Do i need to download special drivers?. In skype i can't even test the camera. and with empathy the webcam icon and the video call option are grayed out. I downloaded "guvcview" from the software center and it works like a charm, i can capture video and take pictures, so i don't really understand why skype and emphaty dont work.
I'm running xubuntu 8.04 with LXDE, 192 mb ram on sony VAIO pcg-z600lek. I want to find a usb webcam that would work with skype (18.104.22.168.)? is there anything I should I look out for when buying such a webcam?
I have an Acer Laptop 5739G I believe.It has an Acer Crystal Eye webcam that won't work with Skype or anything.I've tried a few different methods but couldn't get it to work.Really noobtastic with Linux so realllllly basic information works for me.
When i set skype to load on start up my webcam will not work. However if I manually start it after booting up the system it works fine. I am not using ciaro dock but am using docky. My webcam is a Logitech. This can be anoying as I would sometimes forget to turn Skype on manually.
I am currently running Lucid 10.04 Ubuntu through Wubi and am having MAJOR problems with my webcam. I can use this webcam on windows vista without a problem and very nice picture quality, but when I try and use it on Ubuntu I run into some snags. The webcam is connected and works, kind of, on "cheese", but when I run a test on skype it is just a black box.I have found some code through the forums that allows me to run skype via terminal and will let my webcam work as well as it will on Cheese. Now, when it does run the picture is very blue and dark as well as extremely laggy compared to when ran on Windows Vista.
I have the webcam model Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 running on my Toshiba Satellite laptop with Debian Sid and kernel 22.214.171.124. I am able to get the program GUCView to work without any problems, but I can not get my webcam to work with either aMSN or Skype (2.1 Beta for Linux). I don't know what to do next, or what my options are at this time. All of my friends/family use MSN and/or Skype with MS Windows or Mac. I am able to get sound/voice to work but no visuals.
When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:
So I tried skyping this morning and I could not get my webcam to work it seemed like ti wasn't turning on. TO double check that it just was not skype I opened up Cheese the webcam picture application and it said "no device" found.The only thing I have really changed on my computer since I last skyped were just system updates so something broke in it.
i just installed ubuntu netbook remix 10.04.1 on an aspire one 532h netbook, and everything works great except i cant get the mic to work with skype. i know the mic is working correctly because i tried it in sound recorder and was able to record and playback my voice.all sound levels are where they should be, and everything seems to be in order. i'm using the latest beta of skype also. i installed pavucontrol but that didn't do anything.because the mic is working, i'm beginning to think it may be a problem with skype.
The web cam on my Dell Inspiron mini 10 doesn't work properly. Cheese only takes very dark pictures but no video and the main screen stays dark all the time. Skype transmits a very dark image, too. How can that be tweaked.

i cannot use cheese, is there anyone know how to fix this problem?
My webcam worked with every application in Linux Mint6. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 and find that the input from the webcam looks like a green TV without horizontal lock in Camorama and Skype. However it works perfectly with Cheese.
I have a desktop pc with xubuntu 9.10 32bit installed. I don't have direct access to this machine, but they told me that internet is not working (firefox, synaptic,etc...), but only skype works! If they reboot on windows, everything works well, so it's not a matter of connection or dns.It's very important because they work with that computer. How can i solve the problem? and what could be the cause of this strange anomaly
I just installed Skype and when I do a test call I can't hear myself. For some reason the microphone doesn't work, but I can hear sounds in the speakers. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 can someone help me with this issue?
I can't make a webcam working on an ARM version of Debian (Raspbian for raspberryPI)
I'm trying to use a command line media player to show the webcam images (mplayer)
The command is: mplayer tv:///dev/video0 and I got this output:
Code: Select allPlaying tv:///dev/video0. the filename option must be an integer: dev/video0 Struct tv, field filename parsing error: dev/video0 Tv file format detected. Selected driver v4l2
Note aside: - I've tried 3 different cams(got the same error for all of them) - The output of the command: ls -ltr /dev/video* is crw-rw—-+ 1 root video 81, 0 Nov 11 09:06 /dev/video0 - The cam works in a program like "scratch" in a startx session but doesn't in the command line
