Well from what we know ANY(?) linux cam device WILL work on TV with linux apps but NOT with Skype :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)

So isn't there a LInux Skype version that could work on our tv's with which our webcams would work? ;)

It can be if you run Ubuntu on your TV.

It would be hard to test with Ubuntu (my wife would be pissed ;) )

And are there any works towards having other webcams work with Skype? It'd be great if that would work :)

Interesting. Any recommended app for testing basic cam functionality?
