Skype camara doesn’t work on Ubuntu 12.04

Create a launcher, write this on it:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

Fix upside-down or inverted cam in Ubuntu

Como corrigir a imagem invertida no skype ou cheese.

Reparei agora que tenho estado a usar o Skype com a imagem invertida da esquerda para a direita. Óbvio, se fosse invertida de cima para baixo já tinha notado há mais tempo.

aqui está o link que usei para me safar do problema: http://techieboycdo.blogspot.com/2010/08/fix-upside-down-or-inverted-webcam-on.html

No entanto não segui o tutorial todo. Talvez na minha versão já tivesse a lib que era necessária. Eu apenas criei um link no painel e nas propriedades, no campo do comando, meti:

bash -c ‘export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype’

E o problema ficou resolvido :)

TRUST webcam Ubuntu 9.04 and Skype

How to handle a TRUST webcam with ubuntu and skype?

Basicaly plug it in and run skype. But, instead of run skype simple with the skype command, run it with this command:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

If you want to configure the luncher write in the command field, instead:

bash -c ‘LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype’

In case you don’t have libv4… just install it,

sudo aptitude install libv4l

It should work properly. However, I could not get an image with very good quality… but.. it works. In case that it doesn’t even with this command go to the Skype Options, Video Options, and select the USB Camera device.
