You only need credit if you are attempting to call an actual phone (cellular or landline).  If you are just calling someone in your Skype's friends list, then you won't be asked for any Skype credit.

If you are having troubles setting up your webcam for Skype, go to Tools > Options > General > Video Settings and you can then set up your webcam for use with Skype.

Some of my friends are on webcams driven by logitech and some on skype - can my logitech driven webcam access the skype friends?


Yes - no problem - you will have to download Skype - whenever you want to use a webcam in a new program you have to configure the webcam software to the chat program software

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.

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 MSN 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.

I dont want to download a driver detective, i just want to download the basic wevcam IC50C do you know the site? also, i thought skype was free, but when i tried to log on, its' asking for a annual/monthly...


As far as I know Skype is free for Skype to Skype users over the Internet, but if you want to ring and connect to a land phone line using Skype, then there is a fee required.
As for a driver for your WEBcam I suggest you Google the WEBcam manufacturer's WEB site for support/download.
If you don't have any success downloading a driver from the manufacturer and you don't want to use download from Driver Dective then I suggest you try :-
Driver Guide

The downloads are free but you have to register.

How to register to skype


This is best done durring installation of Skype, though I believe that you can also do it by going to the Tools menu, selecting Options, then General, and then selecting Video Settings.  Also you can run the Skype set-up checker whenever you please, and Skype will call you and allow you to test mics and webcams.

You can find more information at http://support.skype.com/en_US/faq/FA597/How-do-I-activate-video;jsessionid=BF119CEC0AB13464F5A04D05B36A00B3 (copy and paste to browser).

Skype crashes whenever i try to text and often when on vid chat... OS X10.5.3 Intel Pro tower DP 2.6ghz 8 gig ram  airport extreme  iChat is fine


Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with your ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
