Dear friend, if other side does not have a cam or does not put the cam on mode for you then your not able to view them. Some time other side camera window will open in your Skype but you can't see the image. May be you seen black screen or green. It will happens for the few reason. 1. Slow internet connection, 2. wireless net connection, 3. if the other side camera open for other messenger , for exam Yahoo/msn & at the same time she/he sending you a cam viewing invitation in Skype , that time you will see those screens. 4. After log in go in Privacy then Calls & then open video settings. Now you set the Automatically receive video from mode & try after that to use.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Go into the skype setup and access the webcam from there and test setup sound / picture etc.

Ensure you tick a box that says "Show video as soon as connection is made" or similar.

  2. Next click on Calling and Devices. In the Calling & Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or sound device installed in the computer.

Make sure that you have the Microphone pointed to your webcam within SKYPE. I know that with Ventrillo you need to set it up to see the device within the program. I would look for options within Skype.

The person i am calling on skype cant see or hear me


You can only use the webcam with one device at a time? If you are sure the webcam is working properly shut down the software specifically for your webcam.

Log into Skype as normal.

Do you see the video call options in Skype?
In Skype you can check what you see in the following path?
Tools/ Options/ Video Settings/ Camera
Is you webcam listed if not link it using the option here.
