It's not working for me. I found the .so in a different location to the locations listed but when I try to launch skype it says it cannot be preloaded. (I also tried with 'sudo' and same problem).
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
Please help if anyone knows the solution. I don't want to talk to potential employers upside down.

Correct path for me:
Now I'm no longer upside-down. 🙂
