Please define "doesn't work" -- I've seen black screens in Skype 2 (oh
and exactly which Skype 2.0 are you running - a newer beta just got
released), ioctl32 errors in dmesg, and other strange things with the
new beta... And during which every other camera program works
flawlessly with the webcam also!

I guess that's why it's a beta ;)
