Ok, sorry. My fault. More communicative than: I do not have a problem and did not meant to request help
how to configure the system. In this case either CURRENT has a problem or Skype.
The kernel is 188.8.131.52, the webcam is Philips SPC 200NC using video4linux2.
I did setup skype by renaming the skype to skype.bin and replace it with a script:
On the webcam config page of Skype 184.108.40.206. it stated that there are no webcams at all (I also tried without v4l1compat.so), downgrading Skype to 220.127.116.11 solved my problem :-)
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
