@huangja123 It is possible that that may work with Google voice and video chat too. To try it, rename /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin to /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin.real and create a new /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin containing:

For 32-bit Ubuntu: 
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin.real

For 64-bit Ubuntu:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin.real

Once saved then:

chmod +x GoogleTalkPlugin

to allow it to be executed.
