Canot get picture during video call.


I guess the obvious question here is do you actually have a webcam fitted? If we assume yes then does the camera actually work? Again assuming yes, and assuming we're talking about skype then go into tools>options>video settings. Your camera should be listed, if it is and you are just getting a blank screen, you could try installing a program like many cam http://download.manycam.com/
Now it gets a bit weired. Open the many cam program and go into sources and select your webcam and (hopefully) it should show it working. Assuming it is then re-open skype as before and select manycam as the camera and it should then work. I've had to do this work around on a few HP laptops where the built in cam wouldn't work on skype.

I have an HP webcam and would like to make a speech for public speaking class. What do I do now? Seriously need your help. Thanks!


There are many video call conferencing applications that you can use for conducting your speech. You can use Skype or even Yahoo! Messenger 10.0. Just make sure you have installed the HP webcam and properly configured. All you need to do is call the other party and start a Video Call.

Webcam with Skype on IBM 300PL Desktop


you can read this article maybe it will help you determine why you can use the features..


We're having some problems with our sign in server, so you may not be able to sign in to the Skype application or to your account as normal.
[2009/01/21@1746UTC] If you're already signed in to the Skype application on your computer or mobile phone, you should be able to call/IM/etc as normal. This is only affecting people who aren't already signed in.
[2009/01/21@1752UTC] Our forums are experiencing heavy traffic and so access may be slower than usual. Apologies! For more updates, watch this space or follow @skype on Twitter.
[2009/01/12@2002UTC] We've made some changes which should improve things. Stand by!
As soon as I have more information, I'll update this post.

I want to connect my cell phone to skype


Hi,
Visit skype's website or see the settings of your skype messenger. Through this you can acquire some information which you can use to fully apply the settings you want for.
Skype for your Mobile Phone.

* Make and receive Skype calls on your mobile*

* Sign in and see who's online

* Make low cost international calls to any phone number with SkypeOut*

* Chat - available on select handsets
--
* All the rules and restrictions of your individual mobile provider still apply, including charges for local calls, data service and roaming. You should not use this service while roaming. SkypeOut calls require Skype credit, available for purchase at www.skype.com.

Cannot receive video movement link on the WebCam from New Zealand and Canada. We receive it ok from the UK. We have a new web cam and they can see us moving okay but our picture is static. This is when we...


the problem is likely not to be caused by your connection if you receive and send the webcam ok from the UK, probably the people you are calling have too slow connection for a dual (incoming/outgoing) webcam data stream...or they are using simultaneously some application which drains bandwidth.
Retry with Skype only running on both sides(kill any other bandwidth consuming app/update.).
if it still doesn't work, the people you are calling need a faster connection.

4. Check Star my video automatically when I am in a call check box
5. Select webcam from the drop-out menu
6.You may check webcam settings by pressing button Webcam Settings
7. If you can't see your video in rectangle on the right, check whether your webcam is correctly installed (driver) and connected to the PC.
8. Check Automatically receive video... from anyone or only people in my Contact List check box.
9. Save your changes
