Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam
Every time i make a video call my computer camera doesnt show anything.
First test it on this free webcam test site. If you can't see yourself right away click the drop down box of choicse under the Live Camera window and select your webcam. If you still can't see yourself then you need to reload the software drivers, either from disc or the Microsoft web site.

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program
Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
working OK ?
CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
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.
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
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
