Orbicam freezing in Skype

My Orbicam worked fine when using Skype, then it started to freeze, now it says it isn't connected. Also, when I open the camera icon, it disappears quickly to the toolbar. Any ideas?

    Someone suggested "wiggling" the camera..it has worked ever since. Thanks for your suggestion, it might be helpful in the future.

1. Check if your computer has enough memory available. Open task manager, select performance tab. Check the green bar on the bottom then copare memory usage to the total of your Physical memory. If your usage is greater then physical memory then upgrade memory on your laptop.
2. Unistall your Skype application and reinstall it. Do the same for your Webcam.

Good luck.

How do I stop Skype freezing oon my laptop ?


Try This:

CTRL+ALT+Del this will open Windows Task Manager Under Application tab right click on Skype and left click on "Go To Process"
Left click on End Process. this will stop Skype without rebooting the PC.

After opening Skype does ALL programs Freeze? If so then its probly Malware running on the PC.
Reboot the PC into safe mode and run a full scan with your antivirus program.

Good Luck!

Not working


when you use cam in skype that time confirm your self that your not log in yahoomessenger, msn or other video chat. Becose if your cam working in any other messenger or site that time you can access your cam in skype. On that moment Skype cam window show you grey color. And another reason is Skype looking for little bit good speed net connection. If your net little bit slow then also you find your cam window is Grey. Just follow the way, hope you het success.

My orbicam is not working


You should go online and download the updated Driver for the orbicam (google on orbicam). Reinstall it, restart the computer, and then try the cam again. There may be something in Skype that helps config your cam.
