My USB Webcam is listed as /dev/video0 when ls /dev/video*.
In skype, when i click "Test" button on video settings i am getting msg in log as "libv4l2: error converting / decoding frame data: v4l-convert: error parsing JPEG header: Not a JPG file ?"
When i try with camorama i got error message "Could not connect to video device (/dev/video0). Please check connection"

Pl. advise
