Skype on Linux, upside down videoI'm going to start using Skype more, or "chat software" in general so I got Skype fired up today and logged in.
Everything was fine, except the video camera (video chat) had the image turned upside down.
Some googling later I found the fix, and here's a small tutorial for an Ubuntu box:
mv skype skype.bin
Paste this into the file:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so exec ./skype.bin
save, and run
chmod +x skype. Next time you fire up Skype via the terminal, video should be correct vertically.
