Hey guys

I have problem running video in Skype during conversations.

When I verify the cam through video device test .. it works and function perfect. However, when I launch conversation with others .... I can see them but they can't see me, though we can hear each others


OS is ubuntu 9.04

the cam is recognized by Skype, VLC, and aMSN

Do you have "Start video automatically" box checked in the video settings tab? If not, when you start a call, you have to click the blue button below the "video box" and select "start my video".

what i did is to remove the current Skype edition, installed Skype static and the video functions perfectly now
