    Also send this to your family
    and friends so they have their computer setup properly.



    Web Camera’s have to be
    setup on the program they are to be used with.
    Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to
    broadcast on messengers or Skype.


    Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for
    the Audio and Video to function properly.





    Skype Setup:


    After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download...)
    set it up as follows:



    1. Go to Tools,
      then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
      and Speakers
      to the computer Audio Card.

    2. Then
      click on the Video Settings.

    3. The
      camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.

    4. Then,
      on the bottom of the page click on Save.


    The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to
    see and her to you.


    Hope this helps.

Open Skype.

Go to Call ---> Audio settings---> enter

On the left pane locate video settings.
click and watch yourself. do needful adjustments.
If camera is not loaded nothing will show here. you need to install webcam software.

He probably does not have a web cam or it is not setup.

Direct your computer browser to Skype, and download that software. Set up an account at Skype. After all of this is done you can connect your skype phone to your computer. I am surprised that the phone did not come with install software....

On web cam people can see me but I can't see them its saying not connected


it's not your CAMERA it works they see you, it's THEIR camera that isn't working. Have them go to Tools/Options/Video Settings and change it there. If they have a web cam connected to a laptop it's probably trying to use the laptop's built in camera, and if the lid is down you see squat. They'll likely have to go back and reset every time they reconnect the camera because Skype looses track of it and falls back to the default.

This indeed sounds like a scam. What they will do is get you to sign up for paid protection, steal your credit card information and fraud you.

Check your profile, I would think you have an option to keep it private, otherwise I would suggest canceling your account to be on the safe side.

Try to connect your camera on another USB ports. Power indicating light of camera should be turn on when connecting it. If not connect and check it on another computer. If it do not detects on that computer also please buy a new web cam.

Well when me and my friend are doing web chat on Skype is freezes and says we have bad connections how do we fix it because its really annoying and we cant do anything well we dont know what to do


Hi munchkinelle,
This could be because of heavy traffic and / or heavy usage on the bandwidth which has been allocated to you.

I would advice you to quit all the other programs accessing the internet , including any updates which have been set in the background.

This should help a great deal to you as well as your friend

Hope this helps ...:)
