Skype webcam

Skype webcam-9

Colors are all messed up (adding "options gspca force_rgb=1" fixed the color problem for Camorama, but not Skype). You should setup ov51x-jpeg-1.5.7 and "sudo modprobe ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1" or "sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options" add there "options ov51x-jpeg forceblock=1".

ov51x-jpeg-1.5.7 can be found here: I installed the webcam driver using Easycam2.

Webcam was then recognized and working, but still not usable in Skype.

To get webcam microphone working I had to reboot, go to sound settings and select it in the input tab.

Then start start a Skype test call and select the right input in the recording tab Video works with version 2.1.0.47.
