Something really drives me crazy here. I have a Logitech quickcam im installed which in the amsn video and audio settings works pretty well.
However, it just does not with amsn, cheese and skype - even the green LED indicates that it works.
I have been searching for help for days here but cannot find anything which drives me crazy. I need that cam for video conferencing and those guys all use Skype
Here are some details:
idVendor 0x046d Logitech, Inc.
idProduct 0x08a0 QuickCam IM
this and similar things won't work:
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
Please be nice to me, you are talking to a real computer idiot ...
