Well the thing is with Digital Camera If there is lots going on (on the computer) your other program might interfer
1st end all processes that might have anything to do with the camera or that may be using any of its features, I would retart your computer as well
If you still have any issue uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the camera.

Good Luck

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!

Try updating skype on both machines and make sure there is enough band width to work. If you use a Mac, why not use Facetime.

Can not activate my webcam of my Apple Macbook (white) via skype..sound is ok both sides..i can only see the other party ..but they can not see me


First check that your isight camera is working by going to applications and selecting the application photo booth. If your isight is working you will see yourself in the photobooth window. Now if it is working open skype, first check that you have the latest version of skype by going to the skype menu and then check for updates. Once you have the latest version go to the skype menu again then preferences then under the video make sure that the enable Skype video checkbox is checked and you can check the start my video automatically checkbox as well. Then close the preferences window. Hope this helps.

Quickcam for SKYPE


Hopefully you have not loaded the quickcam software yet. If you have, hopefully you only loaded the drivers for the cam and not the logitech control panel for the camera. If you loaded the control panel, it loads everytime you start your computer and runs minimized in the bottom status bar. When you start Skype, it activates the camera and so does the logitech control panel. Thus you have two programs trying to control the cam at the same time and you have nothing but problems thying to get it to work. You will need to right click on the logitech control icon and exit the program before starting Skype. After you start Skype got to tools, options and set your camera and mic. settings from the drop down menu. You can then go to Skype test call and see if the settings are correct. Skype allows you to turn on the video or off when you make calls to others. This is so they can't see you, but you can see them during the call unless they have theirs turned off also. Good Luck, RAC

it's likely a Skype setting. Try this in this exact order:
After turning on computer, insure that camera is connected ad recognized by computer,
Then start skype. In Skype: Choose Tools: Options, in the general tab (on the left) select video settings, click on "enable skype video" and "start my video automatically when I am in a call". Lastly under "select webcam:" click on the pull down menu and select your camera.
Save and you are ready to place your video call
