I am unable to access the wesite to reset my forgotten password? Help every time I follow the instructions, i get a not able to access this site note.


If you aren't familiar with firewalls or ports, it may be a good idea to ask a system administrator to help you. The minimum requirement is that Skype needs unrestricted outgoing TCP access to all destination ports above 1024 or to ports 80 and 443 (the former is better, however). If you don't allow either of those, Skype will not work reliably at all. Voice quality and some other aspects of Skype functionality will be greatly improved if you also open up outgoing UDP traffic to all ports above 1024, and allow UDP replies to come back in.

In the quest for even better voice quality, it is also advisable to open up incoming TCP and/or UDP to the specific port you see in Skype Options. This port is chosen randomly when you install Skype. In the case of firewalls, this should be easy to arrange. In some routers, however, you cannot configure incoming UDP at all (but you still can configure incoming TCP port forwarding, which you could/should do).

The randomness in port selection is to improve NAT traversal for cases where several users are behind the same NAT; if they all used same ports, many NATs would behave in a way that would reduce Skype voice quality.

Also make sure that you have the latest version installed. You can do it by clicking Check for Update in Help menu in Skype or just go to the download page where you can always download the latest version.

Skype supports authenticating HTTPS/SSL and SOCKS5 proxies.

Please see separate page for more information about Skype and firewalls.

Cannot get incoming video with Skype.


This is usually a problem on the other users end. If this error occurs with all incoming video, regardless of the other user, try this.
Reinstall the version of Skype you are currently using. If the issue is still no solved, try installing an older version of Skype on your computer.
Here's a link to an older version: http://www.soft32.com/download_127797.html
Sometimes the newer versions/updates will bring up errors with your computers.
Best of luck!

I have a Logitech QuickCam 6.0 and it has been working perfectly for months with Skype. Now I am still receiving incoming video but outgoing no longer works. I reloaded QuickCam without improvement. ...


Try to check if this issue occurs on Skype only or with all programs

If it is for Skype only:
You need to check the Video Settings in Skype.
Start Skype > Options > Video Settings > select the webcam that you are using.
If the webcam is not on the list, download and install the driver from the manufacturer website
Try to set Automatically Receive Video from - select Anyone or Only people in my contact list.

How can i instal skype to my psp?


The first step in the process involves configuring the Internet connection, which you should have already done if you've ever taken the PSP online to play games or browse the web. If you’re making a call from a public Wi-Fi hotspot, you might have to fire up the PSP Internet browser to accept the hotspot’s terms of service before getting online.
You’ll need to update your PSP’s firmware to enable Skype functionality if you bought your PSP-2000 close to launch. You can find the update on Sony’s PSP support page and full instructions on how to properly update the device. After installing the system update, you’ll find a new Skype selection under the Network in the XMB menu, nestled between the LocationFree Player and Remote Play.
The Skype program will give you the option of using an existing Skype account, or creating a new account directly from the PSP. Making a Skype account couldn’t be easier. Enter your email address and the desired login and password, and you’re on your way. Once the account is created, you can use either your PSP or a PC to hop over to the Skype site to purchase Skype credits using either PayPal or a credit card. You need Skype credits if you want to call cell phones or regular land lines using your Skype account.
profile.jpg
Profile 1 Profile 2 Profile 3 Profile 4 Profile 5 The Skype menu has five main sections: My Profile, Contacts, History, Dial, and Tools. The Profile section lets you adjust personal information. From here, you can change your status, icon, and mood message. Other profile settings let you set your location, email address, and contact numbers.
contacts.jpg
Contacts 1 Contacts 2 Contacts 3 Contacts 4 Contacts 5 The Contacts page, as the name suggests, displays your contact list. From here you can choose contacts to call, but you'll be limited to audio chats only. You won't have the ability to launch video chats—Skype didn’t recognize the PSP camera attachment we imported from Japan. Voice quality will vary with your internet connection, but even with spotty service the connection is more than usable. Our PC friends did have to update their Skype program to the latest version to stop numerous error screens from popping up during our calls.
history.jpg
History 1 History 2 The History icon keeps track of all incoming and outgoing calls and records how long you were in the chat for. It's also a quick way to go back and redial recent calls.
dial.jpg
Dial 1 Dial 2 Dial 3 The Dial feature lets you call outside phone numbers with the PSP. You will of course have to pay real money for this feature to work. We made a few calls using the service and it functioned as advertised, and voice clarity on both ends was more than passable. We did notice some lag, but nothing severe enough to disrupt the conversation.
tools.jpg
Tools 1 Tools 2 Tools 3 Tools 4 Tools 5 Tools 6 The Tools menu lets you jump to the Skype page to purchase more air time, change default sounds, troubleshoot network related port settings, manage blocked users, and tweak a few other minor settings.
Overall, we found Skype on the PSP to be easy to use and great for voice chats. We don't miss the text chat interface, as the PSP's text input mechanism doesn’t make for fast messaging. We’re not really sure how often you’ll actually use Skype on the PSP, but you’ll be glad to have it if you ever find yourself without a landline and a cell phone, but happen to be near an open Wi-Fi connection. Thats about it! =)

Rate please!

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

I guess this has something to do with the status of your bandwidth. It might be that your incoming bandwidth is congested and it's not able to handle incoming voice traffic.
To verify if it's a bandwidth issue please visit this site to check your upload and download speeds.
Hope this helps . . .

Incoming Skype Picture Freezes and/or Jumps


You are not the only one. I have a gorup of 6 people, on Vista, XP, with QuickCamPros and other brands and we communicate daily. We are ALL having the same problem as a result of the last Skype update.

It is NOT your system, it's Skype's issue. Do like we do and in the lower right corner of your screen you can report the quality of the call. Keep doing it over and over and maybe they'll do something about it!
