Bug Description

hi boys... i 'm a beginner of ubuntu . i don't speak very well english but i will try to explain.My problems are connected with this stupid Microsoft Vx 1000 webcam (i hate it ).In a first time,Ubuntu 8.10 recognized it with the comand Lsusb but when i tried to use it in skype the only thing that worked was the microphone.

So I opened a shell as root on my system and:
# wget
# tar zxvf tip.tar.gz
# cd v4l... (whatever the newly created directory name is)
# make all
# sudo make install

then I edited /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-custom and added:
blacklist sn9c102

# reboot
Then after rebooting
i opened a shell and type

sudo gstreamer-properties

and i selected for the video device input usb cam.
After these things, i try to use my webcam like microphone but it doesnt work. When i select mixer, i see always my microphone's normal ?
There is a solution ?
help me please.

Ps i try to use also in skype but also the video doesn't work( i see green screen)
