Microphone works too, though you may need to choose the Input device in System Preferences Sound.

Microphone may suffer from "clicking sound" issue (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ source/linux/ bug/151890 ) Worked perfectly out of the box for all but Skype.

Loading ov51x-jpeg without forceblock-option results in a black video stream for Skype, while it works fine using Cheese.

Skype version 2.1.0.81 works with modified for video size and frame rate (see Skype Garage), then install the package libv4l-0:i386 and change the launcher to: env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1skype Only green double preview. This camera is inbuilt in laptops Asus A8M Skype version 2.0.0.68.

Also setting the autoexpo=0 option when loading the driver can help if the image is really dark. When not running Cairo Dock or running Cairo Dock without Open GL, the C200 with Skype 2.1.0.47 works out of the box.

On Skype 2.2.0.25: make a test call, open pavucontrol, tab Recording, show applications, select USB 0819 as input source for Skype, it will be permanently stored in your ~/.pulse.

Was able to get it working in Skype (2.0.0.72) using gstfakevideo 'gstfakevideo v4l2src device=/dev/webcam' where webcam is the new device I created (so I don't have to do sudo mv /dev/video0 /dev/video1 every time the camera is plugged in).

Only oddity is preview -- works if you stop your video and then restart.The camera works, but the picture has abnormal colours and Skype eats 100% CPU during the video call. The built-in microphone doesn't work, although it is seen by ALSA.Camera originally worked in webcam, but not in Skype.Had to invoke from terminal with following command (note that package libv4l1 must be installed): LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype Tested with Skype 2.0.0.72 on Karmic. Had to edit launcher to following command (note that package libv4l-0:i386 must be installed): env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype With Skype 2.0.0.43 and latest ATI fglrx driver.Camera mostly works, but non-accelerated X11 output currently doesn't scale video output (known Skype issue).For Skype 2.1.0.81 to work with video though, had to go to synaptic package manager and install "libv4l-0" then edit the start menu and/or any links to launch by changing the command from "skype" to "env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype" Works out of the box with ekiga, for Skype to work had to setup "gstfakevideo" found @ Skype 2.0.0.72, good video, audio.. Skype 2.1.0.81: fine after running Skype like this from the command prompt: "env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1skype" without the double quotes.
