If your laptop doesn't have a camera on the top of your screen you can buy a cheap Usb camera and skype with it.

Tip

Stop Skype from Crashing in Windows 8


it's detected in the different operating systems that it crashes while contacting with others via instant messages, webcams or microphones. In such circumstances, you have no need to get depressed, contacting Skype Customer service professionals you can eradicate this problem easily and efficiently. Here are some ways you can also follow up to solve the Skype crashing problems.
Fix #1: Repair Skype Installation
Sometimes, an inaccurate installation of the program can cause Skype to crash. So, follow up the procedure mentioned below to fix the Skype installation issues:
    1.Go to the 'Start' menu and then click the 'Search' box.
    2.Next, input the 'Control Panel' in the box, and click the 'Apps' icon.
    3.From the Results, Choose the 'Control Panel,' and then click the 'More Settings' button.
    4.Click on the 'Programs' icon and go to the 'Programs and Features.'
    5.Locate the Skype program and right-click on it. Choose the 'Uninstall' option.
    6.Click the 'Repair Option.' It will repair the installation file automatically. Fix #2: Re-enable the Skype Add-on in the Browser
    While installing the Skype program, its add-on is automatically installed in the web browser. Sometimes, issues with the plug-ins often cause Skype to freeze and crash. Here's how to re-enable the plug-in.
      1.Open your web browser and click the 'Menu' option.
      2.Choose the 'Tools' option, followed by the 'Extensions.'
      3.Locate the Skype icon, and deselect the 'Enabled' checkbox.
      4.Re-open your browser program. Again, repeat the same process and go to the Check box for Skype.
      5.Next, select the 'Enabled' checkbox. Fix #3: Update Audio/Video Drivers
      Sometimes, out-of-date graphic drivers can encounter various issues with Skype. So, update the audio and video drivers of your system with the latest version that you can download from the manufacturer's site. Here, you will find the updated version, choose the compatible one and follow up the instructions to install them. At such time, you can seek the help of either Skype technicians or Microsoft support professionals.
      Fix #4: Optimize Registry
      Whenever you reinstall and uninstall a program, Windows registry is up-to-date about it. Although, a registry is interrupted when irregular activities are outdone in the operating system. So, download and install a registry cleaner for Windows 8 that will let you clear out several registry issues on your PC. It will clean the registry of your program automatically.
      Fix #5: Install Latest Direct X
      If your Skype program is running slowly or often crashing or freezing, then download and install the new version of the Microsoft Direct X to fix the issue and boost up the Skype performance effectively.
      Fix #6: Check your Antivirus Software
      It's possible that the virus can attack your PC from any open source. Additionally, it critically influences the system performance and slows it down. At such time, your Skype program also gets infected by it. So, install trustworthy security software to scan your computer and detect/remove the threatening programs. Also, ensure that your security program isn't blocking the Skype from working. If it's, then seek the help for it to detect the cause and fix the issue instantly.

Camera is not working as i want to do skype. I thought it would automaticly start working when skype was on, but it doesn't. It is a bit confusing how to solve this problem.


You have to configure Skype to work with your webcam.

  • Open Skype
  • Go to Tools menu
  • Click on Options
  • Click on Video Settings
  • If Skype sees you have a webcam that your system recognises, it will display it there. If not, your computer cannot see the webcam.
If the camera isn't detected, you may need to reinstall the camera driver from the laptop manufacturer's website.

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

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.

Hi, i tried using skype with logitech quickcam but pup-up told me this message: Another application (communications helper.exe) tries to access Skype but we are not able to respond. Try to restart the...


The easiest thing to try is just disabling "Communication_Helper.exe" in Skype. Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Advanced, and at the bottom you will see text that says "manage other programs' access to Skype". Click that and you'll get a window, which should list "Communication_Helper.exe". Deny access to that (don't remove it, because it will just come back), and try your call again.

Be aware, however, that this is only a quick fix and does not solve the problem. When Logitech and Skype have problems like this, they can be pretty big ones, and can cause performance problems as well as interface problems.

The Logitech QuickCam application software is not required for the Logitech Camera to function properly in Skype. If you are not using the QuickCam application for anything else, then you should seriously consider uninstalling it.

That will solve this problem, and various other potential problems and performance issues, permanently.

To uninstall it just go to Control Panel / Add or Remove Software (or Uninstall a Program in Vista/7), find "Logitech QuickCam" (NOT Logitech Camera drivers), and uninstall.

Then reboot to get rid of the background processes, and test Skype again.

I have just downloaded Skype and want to know how to make a call with it?


Computer to computer calls are made by adding the contacts from your email lists or by adding an email name and asking Skype to locate them. If the user has Skype, you can call their PC. The other user must have Skype.
You can ask Skype to search your address book for Skype users to make this process go smoother.

If you are trying to make a PC to telephone call, you have to add money to your account. This is called buying credit. Land calls are 2.1 cents per minute. PC to PC calls are free.
You can dial any number using your keypad.

You must have a microphone and speakers to make a call to a land phone or other PC.
If you have a camera on your PC, you can make video calls from PC to PC. If the other person has a camera, you can see each other.
The button that says make calls is clicked and you follow the instructions on the screen. The red button is to hang up the call.
