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.

I have Pro 9000. When used on Skype, whenever I turn on the webcam, my computer crashes, the whole screen freezes up. Please hlep. Thanks.


If it only happens with Skype, try downloading and reinstalling the lastest Skype version. Also check the AV and firewall settings to make sure Skype has the right exception authorization.

I have a camera on my macbook pro and I need to know how to use it to skype


The camera will turn on automatically when necessary. For example, in iChat, it will turn on automatically when you click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list, it will turn on automatically.

Likewise in Skype, simply click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list and it will initiate a video chat.

URGENT MY ICHAT VIDEO CHAT IS NOT WORKING


If you are using VMware Fusion at the same time that you get the problem then it is Fusion. Check by shutting down Fusion then trying the iChat. If it works fine then it's definitely Fusion that is interrupting it.

With internet sharing off as you describe the next thing is to make sure that it is also not sharing the iSight itself. When fusion is running but not windows itself, check the configuration of your windows bootable in Fusion. (You'll have to excuss me a bit as I havn't used Fusion for a bit since switching over to Parallels) Check to see if the iSight is listed among the USB devices.

If it's not there load up windows and check which devices are connected there from the main Fusion Menu or the little icons on the Fusion Status bar. If it's not, double check by right clicking on MyComputer and choosing properties then go to Device Manager and then looking in there for any USB camera devices. If it is, right click and disable it.

See if any of that helps.

All the best

Upgrading from MAC OS 10.4 to OS 10.5


Apple has a list of specs to run it. Looks like yours falls within it. Although some things will need other requirements like a webcam for photobooth or ichat. But you should be able to get by. Might be a bit slower than some Macs running it, but as long as you don't have 20 things going on at once, you should be fine. Go to an Apple store and try it out first though to make sure you like it.

I have a brand new macbook pro, i hooked it up to my netgear wireless router and i can go on many websites & use iChat, however whenever i visit Facebook.com & try to video chat on iChat the...


Harsh realm. You have to reset the MacBook, or the Netgear? I mean, what happens...you can't even surf to a different site, or the browser freezes, or both browser and iChat? Because I think it might be handy to narrow this down to an iChat or Safari issue.

Then set the problem category to address any unknown problem after googling for iChat/Facebook issues...you know?

Communication Errors between Mac & Windows


I'm assuming when you say they login with AOL, that you mean they use AOL Instant Messenger, since iChat is compatible with that. If that is the case, it should work. As long as the chat clienta are compatible, there should be no issue with using a Mac and a PC. What would be helpful is the exact text of the message. Can you post that?
