Ok. So, I was trying to go on webcam with my friend and we have done it before and it worked just fine. We did it last night, actually and it worked fine. Now today, we try to go on and when it opens up and loads, I just see myself on my little screen & where he should be showing up. Then every now and then, his would be a black screen, but I'd see myself. Most of the time, I just saw myself double.
