Question about Skype IM
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 184.108.40.206.
If you don't have a cam, he can't see you. He can not see you through your monitor.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Check that your webcam is switched on and plugged into your computer
2. A webcam can only be used by one application at a time, so make sure you don't have any other applications open that are accessing the webcam, e.g. other instant messaging applications or even some websites.
3. Problems with video are often caused by driver issues. A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes the webcam work with your computer (some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one). Make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download and install the most recent drivers from the webcam manufacturer's website.
To test your webcam go to the Skype menu > Preferences > Video and tick the box Enable Skype Video. When Skype is able to use your webcam, you will see a video preview of yourself.
