Skype an Google Hangouts seem to be unable to use my build-in webcam on IdeaPad Y510.
In Skype it just does not show me the option to start video conversation. But when I am going to Skype -> Options -> Video Devices, it does recognize the webcam:
Lenovo EasyCamera (/dev/video0)
I am able to see myself there.
Needless to say the checkbox
Enable Skype Video is checked.
In Google Hangouts my feed from webcam is shows black screen. (in the settings it is also shows correct device)
Cheese seems to be working.
I converted from Windows to Ubuntu just recently so please excuse if I am missing some 'obvious' checks or steps before asking this question. I did lots of googling on this issue but could not find any useful solution.
UPDATE: After installing V4L2 drivers and the control panel the issue is gone for the Google Hangouts. But not for Skype...
