I am using android phone camera as webcam through MJPEG software... Flash can detect all video sources without any problems (for example: dxtory, xsplit broadcaster, MPJEG), but skype can't see any of these... Is it because skype can detect only official hardware cameras that are listed in device list? If I am not mistaken these "software" video stream sources used to work with skype.

Hmmmm I am also having a problem with manycam my friend. I use the desktop version of both skype and manycam and have them fully updated as well and I get nothing from using the " ManyCam Virtuak Webcam " source and before I updated the program it was working fine. So now for me if there is some way to fix this problem with the connection of manycam 4.0 to the latest skype I would love to know.
P.S, I have a snapshot from using the new version of manycam with my webcam to get a snap of whats being said with the source for skype so it is seen what I am getting with it.

@MasterAlucard, ManyCam should work with Skype. Are you sure that ManyCam as well doesn't have your camera opened? The problem that you are experiencing can happen when one video stream is already present, for example ManyCam, then another cannot start due to USB 2.0 bandwidth limitation where camera simply cannot stream two VGA streams through USB pipe.
Please try to either plug to a different USB hug, preferrably USB 3.0, or trying to close ManyCam stream while you are using Skype.
If you think it is related to the latest Skype version, you can try with the previous versions:
