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:libv4l
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libv4l-0 libv4l-0:i386
and then I uninstalled skype and grabbed skype_22.214.171.124-1ubuntu5_i386.deb from http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/s
Best of all no need for the LD_PRELOAD command
