I am trying to make webcam work with skype. webcamd-0.1.14 creates 
functioning device /dev/video0 that works in mplayer and pwcview.

Skype complained that some VIDIOCAP flag is missing. So I applied the patch:
I patched kernel with this patch: linux_v4l.diff from and copied over 
compat/linux/linux_videodev.h from the trunk.

Skype now says there is vidio0 device, but video test fails and image 
isn't passed to the peers.

Did you succeed with video in skype?
