Jotis02, this saved my life. As strange it can seem, the same didn't work on FC12, but works correctly in FC13! It's almost an year without skype video!
By the way, if someone wants to put the command at the Gnome menu icon, it is necessary to edit the menu icon properties and put
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype
env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
The first one worked fine on FC13 64bits.
