How to fix Skype video in UBUNTU 11.10, 12.04, 12.10

Paste in Terminal  to create a blank file :

sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/skype

(that if gedit is your text editor)

There, paste the following:

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

save and close

Now to make the file executable, copy and paste the following line into Terminal.

sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/skype

enter

start skype
