Hello Avani, I will start by believing that your web camera is installed and operating correctly. To configure your Skype first you login to your Skype account. When the page finishes loading select TOOLS option from the tool bar. Then select OPTIONS. Another window will open. Select the GENERAL tab and the select VIDEO SETTINGS. If you have a webcam connected, you should see live video of whatever your webcam is pointed to. Smile, it can be you. If you can see the video stream, your webcam is working correctly.
If there is no video there, use the software that came with the camera to verify that the camera is working. If this is ok then check this link for further assistance specific to Skype. If you need further aid, please return here and post it. Hope that this helps. https://support.skype.com/faq/FA1267

Camera is not working as i want to do skype. I thought it would automaticly start working when skype was on, but it doesn't. It is a bit confusing how to solve this problem.


You have to configure Skype to work with your webcam.

  • Open Skype
  • Go to Tools menu
  • Click on Options
  • Click on Video Settings
  • If Skype sees you have a webcam that your system recognises, it will display it there. If not, your computer cannot see the webcam.
If the camera isn't detected, you may need to reinstall the camera driver from the laptop manufacturer's website.

My web cam blur on skype.


Check if your webcam has a ring on the front of the lens you can turn to focus. Then go to the free webcam test site where you can see yourself, and turns the ring until you sharpen the image.

HP KQ246AA 8.0MP Deluxe Webcam not working on skype. It keeps saying there is a video error-the video might be in use by another application or program. Except there isn't any other application that is...


Sometimes webcam software can still be hooked up on a previous program where it was being used, even if the program was correctly exited.
Just reboot your webcam software by unplugging the webcam from the USB port for a couple of seconds
Re-check your settings
  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your webcam as the default microphone. ( If it has a built in mic )
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your webcam as the default Webcam.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

HP Deluxe Webcam on SKYPE 4.0-friends can hear but not see me.


hello you've probably given up and binned the cam by now - we nearly did. but solved it last night. It's the annoying photo editing program that opens automatically when your camera opens up that's interfering with Skype. called magic-i or something like that. Remove that from your comp and the camera works fine. good luck!!

Microsoft LifeCam vx 3000?


According to the reading I just did, neither Windows Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger for Mac OS X have viable webcam support, particularly in the area of sending webcam from Mac to PC. I suggest both you and the person you are trying to webcam with download Skype, from  http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/

If you have any further issues after this, don't hesitate to comment and ask for help again, there are other possible problems I could help you solve.
