1. Are you using the latest skype setup ?
2. Does your PC reboot if you use the Webcam with other application like yahoo or msn ?
3. What is your operating system
4. Have you install the complete software for your webcam ?
Be sure your webcam is selected in the settings of your video chat program. In MSN click Tools, Audio & Video set up, Next. It should give you the option to choose what camera you want to use. With Skype it is under Settings, Camera. You can always test your webcam for free anytime with this link.
You should install the camera driver and after that, configure your skype to use your camera as default video device. You can do that in the skype interface. Make sure also that there is no other software running that uses the your webcam like camera manager or else.
Also send this to your family
and friends so they have their computer setup properly. 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. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/)
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools,
then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly.Your friends and Family will now be able to
see and her to you. Hope this helps.Bud
If it is just with SKYPE and it works fine with MSN. Do the following:
1. Download the latest Livecamvx driver and install it making sure that it is good for the version of windows that you have.
2. If still no luck, download the latest version of skype. Uninstall your version and reinstall the new version see how it goes.
