International calling is not free. The Skype(tm) credit is how you purchase calling time for interational calls.

Skype to skype calls and video calls is free. But if you want to call mobiles and landlines you need to get Skype credits or subscription. There is One month free unlimited word subscription that you can try if you have a valid payment method.

Im anew account from skype


Installation
Download Skype from the Skype website (see Resources), choosing to "Install" and "Run" the program when prompted by your PC.
Double-click the Skype icon on your desktop to open Skype. A small window, titled "Welcome to Skype" will pop up, prompting you to type in your Skype name and password--if you don't have one, click on the option under the "Skype Name" input form titled "Don't Have a Skype Name?"
Input your details into the "Create a New Skype Account" window that pops up. It asks for your full name and email, and you will have to create a Skype name and password. Click "I Agree-Create Account" once you are done and have perused the Skype license agreement. The Skype interface will come up, from where you can make calls and video chat--you will be logged in under the Skype name you just created.

Using Skype
Find contacts--friends or family also on Skype--by clicking on the upper left-hand menu item in the Skype interface named "Contacts." Click on "New Contact" and input your friend's full name, email or Skype name and click "Find." Alternatively, click "Import Contacts" from the "Contacts" menu to import contacts from a number of various programs, such as existing Facebook, Hotmail and AOL accounts.
Contact another Skype user on their computer by clicking on his name in the "Contacts" panel on the left side of the Skype interface. This will bring up a number of options in the right-hand panel of the Skype interface. Click on the green button that says "Call" to make a voice call to this person's Skype account. Click on the green button that says "Video Call" to make a video call to this person's Skype account. Type an instant message into the text box at the bottom of the Skype interface to start an IM conversation with this person.
Call a land line or cell phone from Skype by clicking on the "Call Phones" button on the bottom left of the left-side panel of the Skype interface. This will bring up a large number pad in the right-hand panel of the interface, but you need Skype Credit in order to call.
Click on the "Buy Skype Credit" in the small box on the far right of the right-hand Skype interface panel. This takes you to a secure page. Follow the prompts to enter your billing address and credit card number, and your Skype Credit will be loaded. Go back to the "Call Phones" page and enter the phone number you wish to call, then press the large green button that says "Call."

Skype is free to call and chat with other Skype users through Skype. You need to buy Skype credits in order to call landlines or mobile phones from Skype.

When I try to call someone, it says not enough skype credits, I thought it was free?


@annoyedjo

Skype is indeed free if you're calling someone who also have Skype installed on their system. You could also call any 1-800 or 1-877 Toll-free numbers. The error message that you're encountering - "not enough skype credits" means you're trying to call somebody on a landline or a cellular phone, and this require Skype credits which you can find more info here.

Cheers.

Hi every time i hit the video call button it starts then right awa it goes to end call


One of three things:

1)You either have not purchased Skype credit and therefore do not have the credits for the call
OR
2)The phone you are calling is not capable of receiving video calls
OR
3)Your webcam is not functioning properly
