Re: No video in Skype
I forget where I got this script a year ago or so
Note that you'll need to have v4l installed.
Just name the script "skypelauncher.sh" or something like that. Save it in your user's home folder, then in a user terminal
In your skype icon, which I park on the panel, you can right-click and choose "icon settings", choose the "Application" tab, and on the Command line put "/home/username/skypelauncher.sh". Then it should launch with video enabled.
chmod +x skypelauncher.sh
