Ubuntu: Asus K50IJ Webcam problem


Hello again Ubuntu community! I have a problem again. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 32bit on my Asus k50IJ laptop and whenever i try to make a skype call with the camera on it flips my image upside down. I've searched a lot of threads and no luck. Maybe someone could give an opinion?


First install libv4l-0

sudo apt-get install libv4l-0  

then change skype.desktop by editing

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop  

and replace the line starting with Exec= like that:

Exec=sh -c 'LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype %U'   

Hope it works.
