https://bbs.archlinux.org – I am currently experiencing an issue with my webcam - It is a Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000. The driver is uvcvideo, and for the past year until a few weeks ago, video and sound worked perfectly in vlc, skype etc. I don't know if it is related, but I upgraded my system and made the switch to systemd without any issue (except this one). Now skype (and googletalk) do not display video, although the microphone works. The video device dropdown also has funny characters in skype (circle with question marks). However it captures just fine in vlc. I have attempted running:export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUA (HowTos)
