Skype is very particular about webcams using the latest drivers. If you installed the software using a CD the chances are the software is out of date.

I have a logitech webcam c200 and can't connect it with sites like facebook and blogtv. every time i try the site just tells me that it cant locate a webcam. help?


Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.
Before going into the programs, reboot the webcam software by unplugging the webcam for a few seconds.
Do not start the webcam using the Logitech software but allow the program software to have full control.

Skype does not see my web cam. i can see the person on the other end of the call but they cant see me?


Skype is very particular about webcams having the latest drivers/software.
Your webcam has no bearing on being able to see your contact - you could still see their broadccast if you had no webcam installed.
I suggest you uninstall the current webcam software and download new software

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.

To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
Work your way through the tabs and check the 'notes' window for any information

When going into skype disconnect your webcam to reboot the webcam software but do not run any logitech software - allow Skype to take full control.
