Not working on skype-i cant see my video whila chatting-it says clouse all your programs the cam can not start


A web cam can generally only be assigned to a single running windows application: what Skype is telling you is that your webcam is already 'locked' by another program and it is therefore unable to 'acquire' it.
Use Task Manager (e.g. CTL-ALT-DEL to access) and see what else is running and 'terminate' any tasks that can use your webcam.

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

Cannot get skype camera to come on on an existing account


I can't get my webcam to work

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.

How to use Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam with Skype


well once you have the microsoft webcam software installed..
that is the first step then to go to skype and in skype it will have you set up the video and audio upon first use...
iff you have already past first use.. then when you make a call with skype as long as the software is installed then skype will automatically detect this and use it as the default recording device and it searches also for microphones automatically...
so really not much for you to do, once the microsoft webcam is installed then skype setup takes care of the rest...

How can i install video on skpe


With skype you need to have a webcam installed on your computer. If it is a laptop with a webcam, then you just have to have the drivers installed, and in Skype go to Tools-Options-Video Settings, and choose your webcam there. Save your settings and make a call to someone in your Skype contact list and you will be able to video message. If you have a dekstop then you will need to go buy a webcam, install the drivers from the disc they include, plug in webcam, then in Skype go to Tools-Options-Video Settings, and choose your webcam there. Save your settings and make a call to someone in your Skype contact list and you will be able to video message. You will also have to change your audio settings in Skype to use the microphone on the webcam as your microphone source.

Unable to send my video when talking to anybody


I would need more details (type of webcam, operational system and skype version) to get a better solution, but there are some basic steps:

1- Make sure that the driver for your camera is the latest release - for that check on the webcam's manufacturer website;

2- Go to Skype, Click on tools > options > video settings and see if the field "Select Webcam" has the one that you're trying to use. If not, select it and see if your image appears.

3- Also make sure that you got the last skype version.
