Why won't the camera on my Gateway ZX4971G-UW20P be recognized by skype?


It might be your camera is not on the Skype support list.
What make and model laptop, with what version of Windows?
What version of Skype are you running? You can get the Skype version at Help > About Skype.
Have you tried going to Tools > Options > Video Settings? If you click on the down arrow next to the Select Webcam selection, is your camera not listed?
In Device Manager, is your camera listed under Imaging Devices?

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 am using skype and i tried to turn on my webcam but it says my webcam cant connect.im tryin to find out how to turn it on but i cant..can you please help me.


Skype automatically detects the Web-cam only if it works already well with windows. So go to my computer> see if its listed in the scanners and Cameras devices.

If not listed, then you shall need the drivers for it in order to work in windows.

What program is the web camera located under I can not find it


Hi
Sometimes webcams do not have a program installed. Go 1. Start>Control Panel>Scanners and Cameras and there you can test the webcam signal here. 2. Download Skype for here http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/home/ and install it. Run a video cam test in Skype http://www.ehow.com/how_2008795_test-webcam-skype.html
All the best, Phil

I set up skype on my dad's laptop and mine. We could see each other but not hear each other. I tried to fix the sound and now he can hear me...but we can't see other. I've spent hours on this and can't...


Normal 0 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.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud

Web cams


If you're running Windows XP, have an available USB port, and decent (not dial-up) internet, you're good to go! Any camera on this page should do it for ya, though I'd recommend any Logitech or Microsoft camera:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&SubCategory=152&N=2000290152

They're also very easy to install, and usually include some sort of chat software. If the included software doesn't suit you, install any popular instant messenger (MSN Messenger would work well) or Skype and you'll be on your way.
