Skype has great information in their help files which include step-step user guides. Below is a link for people who are new to Skype:

1. If you have the latest version of Skype ( 5.2.60.113) you can check this by going to Help(on the right hand side of the menu bar ) (click on it after you sign in to Skype) You will see a window with 4 tabs, Skype Home, Profile, Facebook, and Give Feedback (to the right of where your contacts are shown) If you do not see this after signing in to Skype, you need to update to the latest version

Try updating your Graphics display drivers or VGA, these are very crucial on video and if they are not updated could be causing the problem. Also you could try checking for the latest SKYPE version to put you on the edge so you can access even more features and patches to handle problems with previous versions. On the other side make sure they have also updated there softwares both SKYPE and VGA drivers this will enable both you and you colleagues to connect and view others webcam clearly with much more clear displays.

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 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
