If you look at the bottom of your screen the next time you connect you should see a link to turn on your video. That happened to me the first time too! 8^)

Good luck

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.

Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.

If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

My webcam Microsoft HD-5000's dashboard doesn't appear whenever i'm using skype for calling so the video effects can't be applied.help me


You have to use Skype's effects.

Camera Effects on Skype are available but is only a trial version and then if you like it you have to pay to continue to use it. Called "Magic Camera"
Go to their site: https://extras.skype.com/1915/view (Note: You will have to copy and paste it in your ADDRESS BAR and
then HIT ENTER.
Also you can get Skype "Video Skins" at
https://extras.skype.com/1899/view and its FREEWARE, "Apply animated video effects over your video while you making
video calls." It's FREE.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

This problem occured whenever im making a video call on skype but the same webcam works effectively on msn and yahoo messenger.i see the person im chatting with but my cam is black without any image.


Only one of these programs can use the cam at a time. please close all your programs, make sure they are closed and not just running down there by the clock. then you should be able to use your web cam with Skype. Skype likes to keep video resources all to itself . Reverse happens often as well. Skype will then work , but nothing else. silly but true, Cheers Gurvy

The manufacturer does not list this cam as compatible with Skype. However you can try adjusting it with the Skype settings.

Can't see the other person using skype


Whenever I am in a video call with someone. They can always see me, but I can never see clear them. I don't think it is a problem with my ATEK camera, because I can see myself in the little box in the corner on the skype window. The screen where I should be seeing the other person, is usually a light blue or gray. How can this be fixed?
