thanks for your post. I found out that my camera will be the right way when I put 'LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype' into the terminal.
However I didn't managed to create the skype Wrapper script Launcher correctly, I followed along steps 2 and 3 using LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so instead and also didn't had any errors reported. Still when I open skype the camera upside down. Can you help me to fix the problem? I'm using Debian 7.5 on LXDE

Yes I created the shell script at /usr/local/bin/skype it says in there
Still, when I run it its opening skype with the camera upsidedown.
Do I need to change anything in there?
