    Using Skype, the caller can see me but I cannot see the other caller. When the other caller clicked on play video, her screen opens for a second on my computer and then closes down. What is the problem. Even more wierd, when I open my options window I can then see the other uses, but can no longer see myself. Any suggestions?

    Whenever I am in a video call with someone. They can always see me, but I can never see them. I don't think it is a problem with my logitech camera, because I can see myself in the little box in the corner on the skype window. The screen where I should be seeing the other person, is usually a light blue or gray. It is just blank. How can this be fixed?

    When I make a Skype call on my laptop with built-in webcab, I can see myself in a small box and the other caller can see me, but I can't see them. I know that their webcam is working because they also see themselves in video on Skype screen.

Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

My messages just sit there when I hit send untill the oerson I;m trying to send it sends one to me.Then my message wil go through


Skype keeps the messages on its servers until the person logs in and reads them. If you want to send other types of messages use an email client. Even if emails are delivered to an email address, they will not be read until the person logs in.

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.

Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.
fa3281g.png
If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

I can't see the video of the person I call on Skype but they can see me and I can see myself in the corner of the screen. We both use the same Logitch camera


Hi,
Its clear that there is some problem with the other persons webcam settings and there is no problem from your side.
Tell them to reinstall the logitech webcam driver software and skype software once. after reinstalling their skype, for the first time when they log in, they will be shown with a wizard which is used to configure their mic, speaker and webcam. Tell them to provide correct configurations in that wizard. This should fix the problem and you can enjoy webcam chat with them.

Please rate the solution provided.
Thanks

How do I close a Skype account that I no longer use?


Hi, 1. First thing you can do is to remove all your personal details from your skype account.So when a search is done no one can find you and do not login into your skype account for some time(min 30 days). This will automatically delete your skype account.
2.Second thing you can do is to contact Skype at delete@skype.com. Within a reasonable period of time and upon verification of Your identity, Skype will fulfill Your request of deleting the account.

Skype can not connect


Hi,
It may be that your Government or other authorities are blocking Skype transmission over the Internet. That happens in the UAE.
Try using a personal VPN service to solve the problem. Skype works perfectly every time.

Hope this helps
