Hi guyz. Is skype video already supported in Ubuntu 10.04? I tried it before but it's not supported and the audio is a bit not clear.

Why most of the people are so cruel? Most of the time, I have to be the same.

It should work, I don't have Skype on my Ubuntu netbook (running 10.04) at the moment, but I've used Skype with video on Linux in the past. You can download Skype for Linux.

There can be a number of different reasons why it doesn't work on your computer: is your webcam supported by Linux, are you using the right video drivers, etc.
