Depends on what smartphone are you using. Skype says that not all devices are compatible with their video service.

Hi, I am having Windows 8 laptop, 1st time I connected logitech plug n play headphone, they worked fine , were even set as default device for Skype, but when I restarted my system nothing is happening....

I set the headset to be the default audio device for the computer. I can use Skype fine and can hear iHeart Radio. However, I can't hear my Camtasia recording and don't even know if the microphone is working with it. I also can't hear the Camtasia tutorials or videos on YouTube.

Does anyone have any ideas? I'm using the trial version and want to make sure I can use the program before I buy it. by Video Recording Mobiles Video Recording Mobiles Tablets

I'm not sure how to work a video camera

First of all install its software, if you have and then plug in the video camera. Now you can used its icon to view image or video. When you used it with yahoo or skype etc. then just use video call it will automatically turn on and work.

Good Luck

I have uploaded the most recent Skype version and now cannot use my Skype connection. I am able to see and hear my contact but they have no vision or sound from me

On the new skype the mute and video buttons are moved around. Just make sure that you are not accidentally muting yourself and check whether the video button turns you camera on and off.

If neither of these are the problem, go into the skype preferences and click the Audio/Video tab and check that your audio and video adapters are correct in the drop down menus.

1. First try to check that if your mic is working fine or not. Try to use any voice recording software to record your voice, if it works then your nothing is wrong with your laptop.
2. If you are using any proxied connection, it is possible that your proxy is blocking it. it happens in college, universities.
3. Try to reinstall the OS and then reinstall all the drivers correctly and then install Skype.

I can see and hear my contact and they can hear me but they can't see me. I know my camera functions for taking pictures and videos and I've used skype once before several months ago and it worked wonders.


Open Skype and click on Tools>Options...>Video Settings and see what you have as your Webcam. If it doesn't have anything listed you may need to reinstall the driver for it.

There are also some options to turn off video on the bottom of the right side. Make sure that wasn't selected by accident.

Try re-setting up your webcam by going to Tools > Options > General > Video Settings.  Also check the cable connections from your webcam to your computer.

Having trouble w/ built in webcam

It sounds like your camera is not being turned on. If you are using SKYPE to connect with family, after you connect up with them you can turn on the camera so they can see you. If you don't use Skype, its a free download and free to converse by computer without paying. You probably already know that. It only costs if you call a telephone number.
What program are you using for your video call? Let us know and we can further assist you. Bud
