No webcam detected on oovoo


Make sure no other programs such as Skype are running at the time. If Skype is running and using the web cam, its likely it will be unavailable to other programs. Online virus removalWindows8Blog

My dell inspiron 1545 laptop web cam isnt working with skype anymore


Check in your Device Manager from the Control Panel. Look for the WebCam under Imaging Devices. Delete it and allow the system to reinstall it by using Scan For New Hardware. If it's detected, open a browser and go to TestMyCam.com (yes, it's safe). If you have video there and not in Skype, remove and reinstall Skype. If it's not redetected in the Device Manager, it's likely broken (yep, they do break).

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

How to use Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam with Skype


well once you have the microsoft webcam software installed..
that is the first step then to go to skype and in skype it will have you set up the video and audio upon first use...
iff you have already past first use.. then when you make a call with skype as long as the software is installed then skype will automatically detect this and use it as the default recording device and it searches also for microphones automatically...
so really not much for you to do, once the microsoft webcam is installed then skype setup takes care of the rest...

I've had no success in getting my logitech web cam to accept Skype. I tried for two hours yesterday. When I reboot, I'm back to square one: Skype telling me that it doesn't recognize my Logitech quickcam....


This reminds me when I had the same problem when Skype version 4 came out and it loaded so fast the webcam software was not in place and Skype could not detect the webacam.
The workaround was to right click and exit Skype and restart it but others on the Skype community chose to go back to an older version of Skype.
I'm surprised if its the same problem still as several updates have been made since then I thought it would have been patched - I am now on the latest version

Do i have to pay a fee before i can talk to friends by video webcam??? if not how do i get on line??


Hello,
You dont have to pay any fees for using your webcam in skype. Your system would have already configured your webcam with skype. So during the call there will be a video button which you have to click to start your video.
If your webcam is not detected, go to video settings and set your webcam using the dropdown listbox in video settings.

Good luck,
Jegan

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
