skype web cam not working; in vlc no problem

Post by pablok »

Hello members,
I'm trying to help some people with linux mint 17.1 and skype.
Their Asus F5 laptop has a built-in web cam
(Bus 001 Device 004: ID 174f:6a31 Syntek Web Cam - Asus A8J, F3S, F5R, VX2S, V1S)
that works fine with VLC. When skype is started and we look in the options menu the web cam
it tries to use is on /dev/video0.

Other related info, from dmesg | grep -i video
[ 0.608207] pci 0000:01:05.0: Boot video device
[ 3.286943] ACPI: Video Device [VGA] (multi-head: yes rom: no post: no)
[ 3.291859] input: Video Bus as /devices/LNXSYSTM:00/device:00/PNP0A03:00/device:01/LNXVIDEO:00/input/input9
[ 19.040908] asus_laptop: Backlight controlled by ACPI video driver
[ 19.905303] Linux video capture interface: v2.00
----- and from lsmod
