Built in webcam won't work with Skype

I have a Gateway USB 2.0 webcam built into my laptop. I chose that option when setting up Skype Video Settings, but it will not send video to other caller, nor will it automatically launch even tho' the "launch when I start a call" option is checked.

Skype help website makes it sound so easy, but it's not working at all and I have no idea why. Can you help?

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

My aspire 5532 is suppose to have a built in camera on it and i pressed F6 like you are suppose to, to get it to turn on and its not turning on. I will mainly use it for skype during video chats. What can...


I have the same laptop, and i got the same problem with the camera, but see what i found. The built-in camera is located in the same piece of plastic that camera does. Then, if you open/close the laptop so many times, this seems to damage the camera connection and is like it doesnt have any camera. So when i want to use the camera, i simply push with my thumb around the camera, and run the program/chat or anything that i will use the camera. Of course, you first look at the drivers, if correct , then try the other solution i post. And theres no built in microfone. Hope it solve it.

How do i set up my web camera how do i use my built in camera in my laptop


Using a 3rd-party software like Skype or Yahoo! Messenger, you need to configure those software in order to use your webcam.

Open YM and go to Preference (Options for Skype)
Go to My Webcam and configure your software to use your built-in webcam and click save

For Skype, Select Options then Video settings...

Don't forget to click save after setting the webcam.

Can you try to see if this TEST will find your webcam it works the video only if you have more that one VIDEO IN (for example a tuner card) you will need to select your webcam from a drop down menu.

If this will not find your webcam then its either a driver issue or it has failed on you. Sorry for the bad news if video test can find it !

Sometimes webcam software can still be hooked up on a previous program where it was being used, even if the program was correctly exited.
Just reboot your webcam software by unplugging the webcam from the USB port for a couple of seconds
Re-check your settings
  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your webcam as the default microphone. ( If it has a built in mic )
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your webcam as the default Webcam.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

How to use my webcam on my gateway laptop


Hi,
The webcam just needs a program to be used with, such as Messenger or Skype. If you want to record movies with it, you can download and use Videocaster, and choose Capture Video from the main menu.
In Messenger, you login and go to Tools > Audio and Video Setup, and click Next past the audio settings, and, in the video settings, choose USB Video Device from the list, and press Apply.
In Skype, you login and choose the same device, but you go to Tools > Options > Video Settings.

Hope this helps
