http://askubuntu.com – I see a number of feeds regarding Skype and Ubuntu 11.10 on the forum, however can't find the right answer. I have a GE Webcam, and it worked plug and play. Other people can see and hear me, and I can see my own video. However, I cannot see their video feed. I used the command in the terminal: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype No errors upon skype starting up. However, still cannot receive the other persons video. I just get a white space (or black if full screen). Upon exiting the call, the following error shows up in the terminal. libv4l2: er (HowTos)
