This is best done durring installation of Skype, though I believe that you can also do it by going to the Tools menu, selecting Options, then General, and then selecting Video Settings.  Also you can run the Skype set-up checker whenever you please, and Skype will call you and allow you to test mics and webcams.

When using Skype, I get an error message and people hear me but


Hi, I checked and found that the Oker web cam was rated one of the best for Skype. If you read Microsoft's review of your cam it shows that it's really made for the Windows Live System. Check out this link on the Oker.

7a9bc13.gif If you can do it, buy a Oker and test it out to see if the problem is with your cam and not the pc. If it turns out the same as your MS cam then we can look into your setup on your PC. but you have stated that your cam works find with other software. Let me know how it went.

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Hi i bought this webcam but i dont know how to use it in skype?


Go to the tools tab, then options. There should be a tab in there called " Video settings " Go to that and make sure that Skype is configured to use your web cam as it's video device.

Also, make sure that the web cam drivers are properly installed on your system as that could be the problem as well.

I hope this helps.

MS vx 700 webcam plug/won't play


In the end I just rang the MS helpdesk. They suggested that I looked up the the device on "my PC". I did - found it, double clicked on the device... and it sprang into life... I opened Skype, who was now also able to see the device... and it works.
Hope others may be able to use this as well?
