HI,
If what you say is right then the Issue is either with the Camare,or OS ,or software.

Camera?
To findout if it is the camera or not Try using it On another computer..(if you dont have it anyways you could see your Pictures but you are not able to send it so the camera is Fine.)
OS?
Now to its functionality with OS, check if that camera and its drivers installed are Compatible with the OS you have on your computer,..(older cameras have issues with Vista Products Vice versa)
Software:
If you want to find out wheather it is the Software or not Try using some other software Besides Skypes,
like Yahoo messenger for example and others...
If you Figure where the Problem is you should be able to fix it like If it is the Camera or the compatibility.. You can work on the Camera end to fix it.
Or else
if it is software,reinstalling the Skype or changing the software are alternative solutions...
Hope that help.
Just ask me if you need any more help.

    Skype supports Logitech and Freetalk webcams. Any other webcams are iffy. I have the same problem with my Phillips webcam at work. But my logitech at home works great.

    also make sure if the camera is skype compatible.

    because most of the products are not compatible with skype.

    even some products bought from skype itself are not compatible with their software.

    so make these things cleared sir.

    thank you


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 30, 2008

    ok do as i say.

    restart the system with camera plugged off from the PC.

    now login the skype and then now plug in the camera.

    and now start the camera from skype.

    you can send you image now.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 30, 2008

    did you try this solution or not?
    "restart the system with camera plugged off from the PC.

    now login the skype and then now plug in the camera.

    and now start the camera from skype."

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 30, 2008

    this means the cam is not compatible with skype.

When im webcaming the i could see the other person but the other person cant see me, their screen is black & so is mine


Can you make sure you are using the same version of the communication software? If you can use the web cam in other programs, that should be the issue. Otherwise you may need to update the driver of your web cam.

Using a vx-5000 webcam with Skype the video connects for about 5-10 seconds then freezes.


Try re-downloading the drivers for the web cam to your computer or try using a different web cam all together.

Good Luck :)

HP web cam software doesn't see built in camera


It might be a good idea to download the latest software for your Camera as it is never up to date when you purchase Webcams. Always get the latest software drivers/programs for new hardware.
Before you load up the new driver check for any special instructions that came with the cam as you may need to uninstall the old software first. Sounds like it's corrupted anyway. Good luck

Cannot receive video movement link on the WebCam from New Zealand and Canada. We receive it ok from the UK. We have a new web cam and they can see us moving okay but our picture is static. This is when we...


the problem is likely not to be caused by your connection if you receive and send the webcam ok from the UK, probably the people you are calling have too slow connection for a dual (incoming/outgoing) webcam data stream...or they are using simultaneously some application which drains bandwidth.
Retry with Skype only running on both sides(kill any other bandwidth consuming app/update.).
if it still doesn't work, the people you are calling need a faster connection.

Why my web cam just black screen how can i fix please help me


Hi,

If you are using Windows Messenger, you have to go to Tools > Audio and Video Setup, click Next past the audio settings, and choose USB Video Device from the list, and click Finish.
In Skype, it is (after you sign in) in Tools > Options > Video Settings and change it to USB Video Device.

Hope this helps
