    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.

Web cam use with skype


if you are using the usb web cam. Then you can insert into the usb port on your laptop. But before you insert the usb cable first install the web camera driver software . Then insert the web camera usb cable into the usb port and go to the web camera software and check the display which you can see the face . After that we can go the skype online and go to the file menu then press chat with your friend as you know .If you dont have any driver software with you then you can download the software through the internet.

Sound - no video


Both try using windows live and set up audio and video in the settings as you did with Skpe, as it's a similair programme and supports any camera. If that works better then Skype has a problem with your camera makes.
