Ubuntu – Skype video not working after upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04


I used Skype with this command on Ubuntu 11.10:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

But since I upgraded to 12.04 it dosn't work and I can't use my video (Webcam).

I have latest libv4l and my Webcam works with other apps.

How can I fix this?

The path to v4l1compat.so has been changed. So, you should use the command:

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