Bug#697854: general: Fail to display video
I just installed a fresh Debian 6.0, and got the problem that video doesn't
show, specifically in skype (neither preview nor call) and cheese (preview).
The webcam appears to work fine, since it shows up at the remote end on skype
call (but I see nothing here), and cheese captures pictures nicely.
Also, when I ssh from another host with ForwardX11, then skype (both preview
and call) and cheese preview show video on that host.
Thus, I'm guessing on something with X but don't know where or what.
The host is a Sony Vaio Z with:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Sandy Bridge Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 09)
