1. Check if your computer has enough memory available. Open task manager, select performance tab. Check the green bar on the bottom then copare memory usage to the total of your Physical memory. If your usage is greater then physical memory then upgrade memory on your laptop.
2. Unistall your Skype application and reinstall it. Do the same for your Webcam.

Good luck.

On web cam people can see me but I can't see them its saying not connected


it's not your CAMERA it works they see you, it's THEIR camera that isn't working. Have them go to Tools/Options/Video Settings and change it there. If they have a web cam connected to a laptop it's probably trying to use the laptop's built in camera, and if the lid is down you see squat. They'll likely have to go back and reset every time they reconnect the camera because Skype looses track of it and falls back to the default.

I am trying to use my Veo camera with Skype. I cannot get a picture. Is there any software update that I can download to make my camera work with Skype?


I have read that the Veo Camera uses a Video format that is incompatible with Skype. I have also found that some have had success using Splitcam to control your Veo camera, and then setting Skype to use Splitcam as the camera of choice.
  1. Download Splitcam from www.splitcamera.com
  2. Install it, run it, click on the Video button and select your webcam. Click on the on button. You will see your face.
  3. Now go to Skype>Tools>Options>Video Setting and select Splitcam as your webcam.
If this doesn't work, you will more than likely need to get a new camera that is compatible with Skype.

My web cam pleomax pwc 4200 don't work with skype


Dear friend, if other side does not have a cam or does not put the cam on mode
for you then your not able to view them. Some time other side camera window will
open in your Skype but you can't see the image. May be you seen black screen or
green. It will happens for the few reason.
1. Slow internet connection,
2. wireless net connection,
3. if the other side camera open for other messenger , for exam Yahoo/msn & at the
same time she/he sending you a cam viewing invitation in Skype , that time you will
see those screens.
4. After log in go in Privacy then Calls & then open video settings.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Quickcam for SKYPE


Hopefully you have not loaded the quickcam software yet. If you have, hopefully you only loaded the drivers for the cam and not the logitech control panel for the camera. If you loaded the control panel, it loads everytime you start your computer and runs minimized in the bottom status bar. When you start Skype, it activates the camera and so does the logitech control panel. Thus you have two programs trying to control the cam at the same time and you have nothing but problems thying to get it to work. You will need to right click on the logitech control icon and exit the program before starting Skype. After you start Skype got to tools, options and set your camera and mic. settings from the drop down menu. You can then go to Skype test call and see if the settings are correct. Skype allows you to turn on the video or off when you make calls to others. This is so they can't see you, but you can see them during the call unless they have theirs turned off also. Good Luck, RAC

ILifeCam vx3000 installed ok, used once and now cannot connect


Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud
