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

How do you use the crystal eye web cam?


The Crystal eye web cam will run itself when needed.

IE: If using Skype for video calls, it'll automatically switch on when the call is made.

Tip

VIDEO CALLS


A video call is a call whereby the caller and the called can see each other on their respective devices. BUT, till now video calls were permitted only on 3G networks. And not all have 3G on their mobile phones. Or, not all phones are 3G compatible. You can still make a video call even if you do not have a 3G enabled phone or you do not subscribe to 3G network. How? Read on.
Fring and Skype have jointly come out with a new Fring social network whereby all Skype users using Fring on their phones can now make video calls over WiFI networks. Meaning, if I am a Skype user and accessing Skype through Fring on my phone then I can make a video call to any other Skype user (through Fring) if I have access to a WiFi network. Whether my phone is 3G network capable or not or whether I subscribe to 3G networks or not. Only requirement is a front camera on my phone.
Skype is an Instant Messenger that allows free skype to skype calls over the internet and can be downloaded free from www.skype.com.
Fring is a combination of Instant Messengers that provides you the facility of using most of the IMs with just one login into Fring. And some of the social networks as well. It can be downloaded free from www.fring.com.

Forgot my skype name


Open the skype utility and you will see a prompt "fogot my skype name or passwword". This will ultimately lead to you getting the information you require sent to the email address you used when you subscribed to Skype -the whole process should take you about 2 minutes.

How do u use web cam on a acer aspire? plaease help me


It will automatically pop up or turn on if you will be using video call in yahoo messenger or skype application. First if you do not have yahoo messenger or skype you have to download it from this website, for yahoo and for skype just click download latest version link and install the application. Register if you do not have an account so that you can sign in and you can test your webcam. Have a nice day!

I bought a Zippy's web cam , Product Name : WB CAM ACRYLIC 809. When itry 2 make a video call on Skype , the live feed is not transmitted to the other person.......wat is the problem??


so your cam is opening but not connecting..

there is two reasons

one is that your internet connection is slow...try to connect again...

two skype is the problem...recently i keep receiving comments and questions the same of your problem..

i've read some articles and post in the internet and find out that there is a problem in skpe..

We're having some problems with our sign in server, so you may not be able to sign in to the Skype application or to your account as normal.
[2009/01/21@1746UTC] If you're already signed in to the Skype application on your computer or mobile phone, you should be able to call/IM/etc as normal. This is only affecting people who aren't already signed in.
[2009/01/21@1752UTC] Our forums are experiencing heavy traffic and so access may be slower than usual. Apologies! For more updates, watch this space or follow @skype on Twitter.
[2009/01/12@2002UTC] We've made some changes which should improve things. Stand by!
As soon as I have more information, I'll update this post.

this is the post and here is the site

I've just signed up with Skype and came to test my orbicam and the software opens but the usual view pops up and says web cam not found or not working??


Verify that video capture or any other program is not running since it will lock the cam. If not try reinstalling the drivers.

My orbicam is not working


You should go online and download the updated Driver for the orbicam (google on orbicam). Reinstall it, restart the computer, and then try the cam again. There may be something in Skype that helps config your cam.

Dont know how to operate my web cam.I have a ASPIRE 5315 with the web cam built in


Use a software that you may have got installed. It must be something like YouCam, maybe.

Or use a chat software like Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or ICQ. They have webcam options for video calls. But you can't take photos or videos there.
