Problems using WebCam in Skype.
I installed Skype on Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bits) as described here Install Skype in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Linux.
After installing, i found that the color webcam display looked ”green”.
I had faced the same issue when i installed and used skype in ubuntu 9.10.
The fix show below helped me at that time, it does rescue me this time also.
To view the webcam properly in Skype use this piece of code:
$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype
To make this a permanent solution, follow the step below:
$ sudo mv /usr/bin/skype /usr/bin/skype.bin
$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/skype.bin
$ sudo gedit /usr/bin/skype
(use anyother editor of your choice instead of gedit if u want)
add the following lines to it and save & close
$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/skype
