The "test video" failed with skype 22.214.171.124 version on my Fedora 14 i386 installation:

Linux succubus.alderwood.net 126.96.36.199-103.fc14.i686.PAE #1 SMP Thu Oct 27 15:58:03 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
> rpm -q skype
I have a video capture card, bt878(hauppauge, winTv). The device is properly identified by skype. It just gets no video when tested. I know the capture card is working, because I can see the video when testd with "xawtv." Does anyone have any success with a similar configuration?
I had a previous version of skype (I didn't remember the version). It ran fine with a previous Fedora 12 installation on the same box. I guess something changed with this version. Is the previous version available somewhere? I'd like to give it try, while waiting for updates.
I found and install the previous version: skype-188.8.131.52-fc10.i586. The video works now. So, something is different about the 2.2.
