Thanks for your hard work.

I tried from the git repo. I tested Flash and Skype4.
For flash, it works. Video and audio playback both work.
For skype4, it works. Video capture, audio playback and audio recording

By the way, I found that I need to modify the oss config file for audio to
I need to change pcm.oss and ctl.oss to pcm.!default and oss.!default.
Else, aplay -D oss <file> works, but aplay <file> does not work.

Because my headphone corresponds to /dev/dsp1 and my internal speaker &
microphone corresponds to /dev/dsp0, and my default sound unit is 1, I have
to add another section into asound.conf for recording to work:

pcm.internal {
    type oss
    device /dev/dsp0
    hint {
        description "Open Sound System (internal)"

ctl.internal {
    type oss
    device /dev/mixer0
    hint {
        description "Open Sound System (internal)"

And select "Open Sound System (internal)" in skype for recording.
Hope this helps.
