Skype not getting video from webcam
rizzo at iet.unipi.it

I just tried (stable/8 as of end of 09-2010) skype 220.127.116.11 with
webcamd, and the video driver seems to get incorrect data, see
there are changing pixels in the first 8-10 rows
(160 pixels each in the preview) which seem to be related
to changes in the image. The remaining area is still though
not always the same in different runs of the program.
The camera with pwcview works at 320x240 and 640x480,
but not at 352x288 (for the records, the same camera
under 7.x and linux-gspca-kmod did work also at other
resolutions, but linux-gspca-kmod is based on a different
version of gspca so the problem might be there).
Any idea on how to track the issue ?
