    Skype Inverted Video Solution

    I used the following to correct the inverted video in Skype 2.2.0.35 (Beta) problem on my Asus UL30A notebook w/ Ubuntu 12.04 64bit. This notebook shipped w/ a Suyin Corp. Asus Integrated Webcam [CN031B]. The video was not inverted in Cheese.

    1. Rename /usr/bin/skype to /usr/bin/skype.original.

    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/bin/skype /usr/bin/skype.original
    2. Create a new /user/bin/skype file.

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/bin/skype
    3. Paste the following:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype.original
    4. Save & exit gedit.

    5. Make /usr/bin/skype executable.

    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/skype
    6. Start Skype as you normally would.

    I can't take credit for this solution. I found it via google except the path to v4l1compat.so was incorrect in the other solutions I found.

    Hope this works for you if you have a similar problem. Comments welcome.
