Please uninstall the skype and run this software (click here to download ccleaner), Open the link, download the program "Ccleaner" install it and run the "registry" cleaner, you can also run the system "Cleaner" if there's no downloaded saved on the internet explorer download directory. After you run the cleaner, restart your computer, download the latest version of skype and install it again. Don't configure anything like connection settings etc.. from the advanced settings. Now click on the advanced settings and check if the Connection settings shows like this or not. (refer to the picture below)
Skype successfully installed and used - 7cc56a9.jpg

If it's not similar, modify the settings and save the changes. Now restart the skype and that'll work fine if there's no windows or virus problem.

If you have problem, Please update me.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi. I have downloaded Skype and can chat


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
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.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
