When I open Skype and then OPTIONS--> VIDEO DEVICES and click the "Test" button to see a video nothing happens. Just a black screen.
However, when I open terminal and enter:
Skype launches and I can then see a video stream.
But when I do this command in terminal I get:
Questions:people@people-laptop:~$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
libv4l2: error allocating conversion buffer
1. What is the error about and does it need to be corrected?
2. How can I use this terminal command to start Skype since it also enables the video to work?
Thanks for your time and Support!
