[SOLVED] Skype with webcam cauze system crash

Hi!

If I use skype for video chat, it's working for a while, but after some time the whole system freeze. This happens if I try to set up my camera in skype moe than one time (for example after the time I open the preferences and video devices again). If I start it from teminal, after an exit from video devices preferences I get error: "libv4l2: error dequeuing buf: Invalid argument". Same error is if I try to start it with: "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype". I tried to figure out how can I fix it, without any results. Any idea what could I so?

I had the same problem, solution was this:

rmmod uvcvideo; 
modprobe uvcvideo nodrop=1; 
echo "options uvcvideo nodrop=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/uvcvideo.conf

Thanks SanskritFritz.
You gave the solution before I found I had a problem.

Fix seems to work well.
