People can hear me but can not see me I can see and hear them

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.

Camera doesn,t work with skype

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.

I hope this could help you..:-) Thanks..

I cant see any icon for a video call in Skype

Normal 0 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 ( 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud
