Question about Skype IM

1 Answer

Do not want to be seen by my chatmate through webcam.

I am on skype but I do not have a webcam. My chatmate on the otherside has a webcam - Can he see me from his webcam? If my chatmate can see me and I do not want to be seen what can I do to avoid this scenario in skype?

My skype version is 3.8.0.188.

Please help.

If you don't have a cam, he can't see you. He can not see you through your monitor.

I'm trying to use my Web Camera for Skype calls and video. I've used it before the picture is clear to me .... the person on the otherside see a bit of picture for just a minute, and then we lose...


this could be the comparability with the webcam. Since i am assuming the webcam is external, it might be a driver or not work with skype. you can always see yourself, but that doesnt mean it will work on the other side.
also because you pay for fast internet or have it doesnt mean you will get it.

Web cam


No.

Is's ok to have only one cam.

You can see the video from your oposite if they have a cam.
Or if only you have a cam the other party should be able to see you.
