    OK, go ahead and ask him for the model number of the webcam. It should be on the bottom of the camera. If I have this I can find the manual and give you links to what driver he needs to install as well as any troubleshooting through skype.

    Ask you dad about what kind of computer he is using. In fact, just ask him:



    • Are you using a PC or Mac?


    • If you are using a PC, what version of Windows are you running (98/ME/XP/Vista)


    • Is the camera built in to the machine (like with a lot of laptops) or does it plug in?

I Can't see the person I'm calling


In the Skype Settings or Preferences on your dad's computer there's an Audio category and a Video category. In the Video settings category there's a drop-down menu where you select your webcam. He needs to make sure his webcam is selected there then click on SAVE at the bottom of the Windows (if there's a SAVE button available).

Does not show video on skype; using wondows xp 2010


Send him these instructions
Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/
Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Can only see myself


I was having the same problem until I updated Skype to its newest version and it seems to have helped. Something else I did was remove programs I didn,t use and old videos from my computer and probably that helped too. Hope my info will solve your problem.
