I have installed skype (4.2) on my lubuntu and it is working just fine for text chat and voice calls. However, when i try to tap the video icon inside a call, it does nothing. The other side can not see my webcams picture, neither can i the other side's. I thought that there must be a problem with my cam, but it is working just fine with guvcview and also in the preferences. I mean where there is a little test box in the video preferences inside skype, i can see the webcam image perfectly. The problem only exists inside the calls.

Thanks for the help
