Yes, for the voice you need a large bandwith, and the quality of sound is better with the phone than skype, so they need more bandwith. You may have reverb too.

I have a macbook. My skype always worked perfectly in the past. Now my caller cannot see me. Why?

Please make sure your system is updated and that you are using the latest version available of Skype for Mac.

Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements:
  • 1GHz Intel processor.
  • Mac OS X 10.5.8+.
  • 100 MB free disk space.
Make your self the question, what happen before it stop working?
An incorrect shut down?
Installed any apps?

I would also advise you to reset the System Management Controller SMC Intel based Macs

Why does my skype in my Macbookpro keep on saying it cannot connect to the server? what do I have to do to make my skype working again?

I would try uninstalling it, reboot the computer and install it again. If you downloaded the update before, I would suggest getting a "fresh" copy. It could be the first install was corrupt.

My webcam isn't working on Skype during video calls


To set up your webcam, please follow these steps:

Download and install the most recent drivers for your video device. If your video camera does not have drivers for Mac OS X, please use the drivers.

Select your video device in Skype under Skype Preferences- Video. This step is not required if you have an Apple iSight.
Make sure the option Enable Skype video is ticked. You can also set video privacy settings to desired options in the same window.

The minimum system requirements for Skype 2.0 for Mac are a Mac OS X v10.3.9 Panther or newer, G4 800 MHz and above, any G5 or Intel processor, 512MB RAM, 40 MB free disk space on your hard drive and a microphone.

Suggested webcams include Apple iSight, Philips SPC900NC, or Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000.

Video and call quality may vary greatly in environments with conditions below these recommendations. Please be sure, that your webcam is connected and not in use with another program.

If you experience any issues with your webcam, please contact the manufacturer directly.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Why my skype cant see my writing in mac

Have you tried trashing the version you have & re downloading the most recent version from the Skype website?
If this is the only application that's giving you this kind of trouble, its most likely the app.
Locate Skype in the Applications folder, drag it to the trash & empty the trash. You can download the latest Skype version here:

(don't forget to restart your mac) ;)

Everytime i turn my webcam on yahoo messenger it turns off after a few minutes. the other party can't see me but i can see that my webcam is till on.what can i do so that the webcam will stay on.hope you...

Try using a different messaging system. If you can see that your web cam is on then it is on. The problem is more likely your broadband or the Yahoo system.
Also it's worth checking that when you turn the camera on that another system like iChat is turned off.

Try Skype, it's free and it works.
