the infamous kopete webcam black screen w/yahoo protocol

the cam itself works (PWC driver) and is recognized by the system. However, it comes up with a black screen both on my end and on the receiving end with the Yahoo! protocol in Kopete. I've read and attempted to employ the solutions in the other posts on this subject, but still no joy. Anyone overcome the same problem?

thanks and best regards, bezdomny
