My eyeshot builtin web cam is not working when i am on skype


Did you try uninstalling your Skype? Maybe your Skype version is an old one (recently they launched the new version). Also, if you Skype tried to update automatically and was interrupted it can cause issues.
My suggestion is to uninstall your Skype using Revo Uninstaller, then go to official Skype website and download the latest version which you will install. They try if it works.
Other thing that might be causing the problem is your camera. Please, go to your Skype now, choose tools>options>video settings and see if Skype recognizes your cam (it will appear in drop down window). If your cam is not listed let me know to find you a solution, but first try uninstalling Skype.
I would also like you to tell me the error message you get.

    Webcam won't work with 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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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

    Web camera trouble with skype


    Check with the Task Manager to make sure there really is no porgram using the webcam, Logitech also has an application installed that is not visible. In some cases this background application is actually required, in others it can cause problems. Not sure if this is true for the Veo cam.

    Yellow vertical band at center of incoming video


    Looking through a Skype forum thread, there appears to be at least 2 issues. First, for Logitech cam users you can try the following:

    - Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Video Settings / Webcam settings / Advanced.
    The contents of this window will vary depending on the particular model of camera that you have. If there are options for "Low Light Boost" and "Automatic Gain Control", turn them off. Adjust the manual sliders in the window to get reasonable video quality.

    This seems to work for some people.

    Then there is the more fundamental issue of Skype driver. Here is the link to the thread (http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=97038) but the essence is that the older the driver the more likely the issue. Even with the latest driver it is not a guaranteed fix, but many people seem to suggest that downloading the latest drivers works for at least some of the time. Clearly Skype have known about this for a while and are dragging their heels sorting it out.

    Hope this helps, T.
