    Default Skype + no video+ Suse 11.3

    Suse 11.3 64 bits, skype works pretty fine with exception of the video, it seems the camera in video options but the test does not pass . Tried to see if others can see my video , they reported on switching my video on, in their window skype shows that video is loading, but the video does not appears at the end.
    Share desktop works fine.

    Tried with :

    #!/bin/bash
    export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

    also

    #!/bin/bash
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

    which solved problem in suse 11.2 , but with no success in suse 11.3.
    Pidgin and Cheese use the camera fine .

    Any idea how to solve problem.
    Thank you in advance.
