Webcam localy works fine, mplayer, cheese, even on the websites running flash. libv4l, preload, gspca already doneISSUE: Webcam, when switch on, crushes skype, if used on http://www.imo.im does not allow to start chat or respond to calls. I've made it work with skype(once and no idea how), only sending video stream, not being able to receive it.
If you are not experiencing similar troubleshot, at least let me know where to look for configuration files.
