It may be linked to the software that came with you machine, say Cyber link, for instance on some HP machines, the "open" is set to start with windows. There are a couple of ways to disable 1) open Task Manager and search for the cam software that's open. 2) run MSCONFIG and disable webcam software at windows start. 3) There is a good little program CCLEANER you can find it here: CCLEANER is a cleaner to remove junk files that clutter your system, a registry cleaner, in TOOLS> STARTUP you can disable (not delete) unwanted start up programs not needed in startup, you must decide which to disable, you will most likely find the webcam soft ware here. CCLEANER does other tasks , learn it and use it often to clean the "garbage" from you machine and free up disk space. If you find this usefull mark the solution box.

If you are sure your webcam is working, then all you have to do is download Skype (free version) ..... your family overseas should downlaod it as well.

Then add your family to your contacts by searching for their Skype ID name. Then you can see if they are online and logged into Skype and double click their name and press the "Start video call" button.

Have fun!

HP KQ246AA 8.0MP Deluxe Webcam not working on skype. It keeps saying there is a video error-the video might be in use by another application or program. Except there isn't any other application that is...

Sometimes webcam software can still be hooked up on a previous program where it was being used, even if the program was correctly exited.
Just reboot your webcam software by unplugging the webcam from the USB port for a couple of seconds
Re-check your settings
  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your webcam as the default microphone. ( If it has a built in mic )
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your webcam as the default Webcam.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

HP Deluxe Webcam on SKYPE 4.0-friends can hear but not see me.

hello you've probably given up and binned the cam by now - we nearly did. but solved it last night. It's the annoying photo editing program that opens automatically when your camera opens up that's interfering with Skype. called magic-i or something like that. Remove that from your comp and the camera works fine. good luck!!
