CONFIGURE TO SKYPE Connect webcam Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Start Skype. On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'. In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings' Run down the list setting your defaults Select your webcam as the default microphone. Make a free test call Click 'Save' In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.

No installation needed on my Mac (1.8 Ghz PowerPC G5, OSX 10.5.5) to use the 1322AF; just plug the cam in your USB port. The camera is detected automatically when starting a relevant program (f.e. Skype). Unfortunaley Photo Booth crashes sometimes (!) Also the software "CrazyTalk" (included) is for Windoze users only.
Hope it works for your guys, too...
