When I use skype 4.2 for ubuntu 12.04, there is a cross on the video sign making a video conference impossible to do. Ive tried everything, logging out, this code that doesn't work.

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

I'm not sure if i just can't do video on skype or if it is another problem.
