Check the firewall settings on your computer & check if skype is on the allowed list.sometimes firewall can cause this issues.another walk around is this close Skype,
go to ""C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Skype"
delete the file "shared.xml".
Then restart skype and contacts should appear normally.

How to add friends on Skype


Adding friends on skype may seem difficult or confusing at first, but you can do it in a few steps. Of course, sign in. Look at the left hand side where there is an icon that looks like a silhouette of a person then a plus sign. Click on that then type the name of the person you are wanting to add. You can search for them by their email, their skype name or their real name. If there's one match in the search results, and it's the person you're looking for, click their name or profile picture.If more than one name matches your search, find the person you're looking for and click their name or profile picture.If you cannot find your friend in the search results but you're sure they're on Skype, just ask them what their Skype Name is and add them to your contacts.In the top right corner of the window, click Add to Contacts and enter some text to introduce yourself. This is important to let your friend know that you're adding them as your Skype contact. When you're done, just click Send. The new person is now added to your contacts but will be displayed with a question mark until they add you back.

When im skypeing with someone i can see them and myself but they can only see themselves and not me. HELP!!!!!!!!! this is a friend in europe i can only talk to at certain times of the day and i need this...


This is more an experience than a solution.
I lost my sound from me so what I did was to download Skype again and what do happened?
the sound came.
Why not try to download it again???
You might also check your camera.
Being in Europe myself I enjoy "skyping" with my friend in the States wvwnthough she does not have a camera
Goodluck

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Lifecam VX 6000 and Skype


On the one I just fixed, Skype would not even see the LifeCam. I had to go into the registry and delete the calls for the Lifecam in the run section. Open Regedit, back it up first then delete any referecne to Lifecam in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\current version\run and also HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Current Version\Run

Be careful to ONLY delete the referecnes to Lifecam. If you are nto familiar with the registry you can seriously mess up your file system.
