Hi folks, I am trying to use the camera on my anroid phone as a webcam on skype client 2.2
HAs any one had any luck with xubuntu 11.10 and using a android app such as "ip cam" or "droidcam" with the 2.2 client?
the video shows up in gstream-properties but when I go to options in skype and click 'TEST' it just shows a black box.
Any1 gotten it to work?
What I did was- add the libv4l ppa using:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libv4lsudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install libv4l-0 libv4l-0:i386
and then I uninstalled skype and grabbed skype_126.96.36.199-1ubuntu5_i386.deb from http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/s/skype/ because the 2.2 from the skype website sucks.
Best of all no need for the LD_PRELOAD command
