Have you gone into system preferences/sound.input/output settings?
try making a free test call, and you can play around with all your settings that way...also helps to keep the volume turned down on your mac, and just adjust it using your headset.

I have a macbook. My skype always worked perfectly in the past. Now my caller cannot see me. Why?


Hi,
Please make sure your system is updated and that you are using the latest version available of Skype for Mac.

Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements:
  • 1GHz Intel processor.
  • Mac OS X 10.5.8+.
  • 100 MB free disk space.
Make your self the question, what happen before it stop working?
An incorrect shut down?
Installed any apps?

I would also advise you to reset the System Management Controller SMC Intel based Macs

Can not activate my webcam of my Apple Macbook (white) via skype..sound is ok both sides..i can only see the other party ..but they can not see me


First check that your isight camera is working by going to applications and selecting the application photo booth. If your isight is working you will see yourself in the photobooth window. Now if it is working open skype, first check that you have the latest version of skype by going to the skype menu and then check for updates. Once you have the latest version go to the skype menu again then preferences then under the video make sure that the enable Skype video checkbox is checked and you can check the start my video automatically checkbox as well. Then close the preferences window. Hope this helps.

I cannot figure out how to get skype on my macbook air

I have video but no sound using SKYPE.


Hi there,

It sounds like you're asking whether headphones are necessary to the Skype experience.

You don't absolutely *need* headphones (or a microphone or a headset that has both), but if you don't use headphones, then your Mac external microphone might pick up the sound of your conversation and you might get unpleasant levels of feedback.

If this doesn't answer your question, please write back with the following information:

1. Your Skype version (click Skype --> About Skype)
2. Your model of Mac
3. Whether you are having problems with your audio
- On Skype only?
- On other applications?
- In general?
4. Whether you have tried clicking on "Skype Test Call"
- Whether you could hear the voice giving you instructions

Thanks!

Why is my built-in webcam not working when im using my skype?


I had this problem, too - but I'm not sure how I fixed it:-) Try these: 1. Check Skype options: Skype :: Preferences :: Video  Did you activate Skype video? Can you select the iSight camera? After yes for the above: Do you see yourself concentrating?
If not:- Try restting the pram http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379. - check for skype updates - I remember some stuff regarding iSight problems, try searching for the following terms: macbook isight skype
Hope some of these might help
