I 've got a mikomi dc7120 webcam that worked on skype when i bought it first, but has given me grief over the christmas period when i actually needed the webcam most! it works under cheese video and photo functionality, but skype seems to recognise it as a 1.3MP uvc camera and yet it does not work when i test or use skype!!
I must also admit that the sound in skype has been behaving bizarrely, sometime the there is a problem with audio playback, this is all very recent, skype had been working fine.

I tried installing the latest beta version but that didn't help.

I don't know if this is related but today i had the black screen on booting, so i rebooted with an earlier kernel version


So that solved the pblm with the screen but no change with skype webcam woes

Any ideas?
