  HP (Hewlett-Packard) (Webcam)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Skype with the HP C3110 webcam.

What doesn't work:

When trying to use my older Logitech Communicate STX webcam with Skype(Beta) I couldn't get the video to work.

What was done to make it work:

Replaced my older webcam with the HP C3110

Additional notes:

I wanted to add this hardware report to the Mint Community since I now have stopped using Ubuntu and have used Mint 12 since its release. And although I could use the old webcam in a Windows 7 Virtual Machine, I wasn't satisfied since the real fix was to use Skype in Mint without using any other method. Installing this new webcam fixed the issue and I would like to recommend it to anyone having the same problem.
