I Have a creative web cam Pro which was working for qiet some time and suddenly stopped working on skype


Recheck your settings
Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

I have a Mac powerbook G4, and am trying to use skype with a creative notebook web cam. Skype does not recognise any camera in my skype video preferences. Any ideas?


Have you been able to work with your creative notebook web cam in any other function on your Mac
Powerbook G4? Probably not. PC cameras are not usually interchangeable with Mac Cameras for
what should be obvious reasons of platform, chipset, OS and IO diversity.

Here's your solution:
Enjoy image-perfect detail and clarity. Carl Zeiss® optics and autofocus keep images razor-sharp, even in extreme close-ups.

  • Carl Zeiss® optics: Get more detail and clarity from Logitech’s glass lens designed in collaboration with Carl Zeiss®, the global leader in camera optics.
