Did you try uninstalling your Skype? Maybe your Skype version is an old one (recently they launched the new version). Also, if you Skype tried to update automatically and was interrupted it can cause issues. My suggestion is to uninstall your Skype using Revo Uninstaller, then go to official Skype website and download the latest version which you will install. They try if it works. Other thing that might be causing the problem is your camera. Please, go to your Skype now, choose tools>options>video settings and see if Skype recognizes your cam (it will appear in drop down window). If your cam is not listed let me know to find you a solution, but first try uninstalling Skype. I would also like you to tell me the error message you get.
I dont know what version of windows you are using but here is the link to download the drivers you need to make the webcam work. Either click on the link or copy the link in to your web browser.
Now I will tell you a very easy way to install this driver. First unplug your webcam. Then go to the link and down load the correct drivers that work with the version of Microsoft Windows you have on your computer. Once the download completes, double click on the file you downloaded to install the driver.The software may prompt you at some point to plug in the web cam if it doesnt once the download is installed then plug in the web cam. Another window will pop up saying a device or drivers are being installed on your computer. It may prompt you some more it might not. Once the pop window goes away if it doesnt prompt you to do anything then I would reboot (restart) your computer and your web cam should be fully functional then.
I hope this helps you out if it does give me a yes that it was helpful to you. Thanks!
I dont know the make and model of your webcam is but here is something you may want to try to get it to work. First look at it closely for a tag giving you the make and model, then go to the manufactures web site. Unplug your webcam from your computer first and download the latest drivers for it. They usually are free and supported by the company that made your web cam. Once you have your drivers installed plug in the web cam back in to your computer. A window should pop up saying that its installing a new device or drivers. Once this is completed it may want you to set up you web cam probably voice and image. After that you should be able to use your web cam when ever you want too.
