Skype on OpenSuSE 11.1

I was installing Skype on OpenSuSE 11.1 with a Creative webcam. It seems that Skype recognized the webcam after install, but I could not get the video to work. Well, if you run the following command from your CLI, then the video should work. At least it worked for me.

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
