Webcam skype chat online
Requires an external microphone as audio and video do not work simultanouesly Works on Skype 22.214.171.124 after compiling gspcav1-20071224gz with patch (originally from this thread).Works like this in xawtv, but performance in Skype can be unstable (100% CPU usage) - if you use gstfakevideo it seems to get rid of the problem. When running Cairo Dock with Open GL need to start Skype 126.96.36.199 at the command line with "export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 && skype" and under the Startup Applications 'bash -c "export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 && skype"' (see The "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1skype" fiddle didn't work despite libv4l-0 being installed.I am continuing to explore video chat alternatives and will post information here.
