Default FreeBSD skype webcam!! Hurrah!!! :D

Hey everyone, i'm pretty happy that I got the skype webcam working on freebsd. I noticed in ports that the skype-devel had "broken" webcam so i wondered if the regular skype worked.

Version FreeBSD 9 on Acer Aspire One(NAV50)
dmesg | grep ugen ===> ungen4.2: <SuYin>
Ports you probably need.

1. Install cuse4bsd (and all relevant webcamd stuff)
2. Install pwcview(optional).. check to see if it works.

3. I made a script which makes it easier (uses sudo)

sudo kldload cuse4bsd & #alternately you could put this in the loader
sudo webcamd -d ugen4.2 -i 0 -v 0 & #your ugen might be different
sudo chown user /dev/video0 &#this should have been created by webcamd
sudo chown 666 /dev/video0 &#Then end is near! its the antichrist!

I opened up skype options and did a test, and after a short green screen walah! my ugly face!
