    webcam doesn't work in skype 4

    Hi everyone!

    I updated Skype to the version, and now the camera doesn't work anymore. Skype recognize the webcam but the box where i should see the video remains always black.

    If i use the webcam with guvcview it works correcly.

    So what the problem is? how can i fix it?

    Thank you!!!

    There are many indications that the new Skype is either defective by design or left with a number of unfixed bugs regarding video (sound seems to work fine). Often the only solution is to stay with the old version.
