Intel Easy PC Camera garbled video

I have an Intel Easy PC camera, i am using openSUSE 11.1, i enabled the webcam repo, my system is using the gspca driver

lsmod output:

lsmod | grep gspca
gspca_spca508 9348 0
gspca_main 19976 1 gspca_spca508
videodev 31236 1 gspca_main
usbcore 165892 5 gspca_spca508,gspca_main,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

lsusb output:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 8086:0110 Intel Corp. Easy PC Camera

Yet the video is garbled and doesn’t really work. Funny thing is that i had it working before with the oldest kernel, i remember that it has something to do with v4l to v4l2 conversion but right now all i have is garbled text.

Does anyone know how could i fix it?

If anyone would be interested i solved by invoking skype like that:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype


LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype

(it is letter L in there not 1 :slight_smile: )

I suppose if you have problems with other apps using camera this should also work.

P.S. Now i need someone to help me because i have weird bluish color :slight_smile:
