Please follow these Steps:
1. Only do Step 1 if you are on WIN7:
Be sure that Compatibility Mode is not enabled (right-click on Skype shortcut icon/launcher and select Properties >> Compatibility) - for Windows 7 users only.
Try to launch Skype.
2. If Step 1 fails or you are NOT using WIN7 do:
Open an Internet Explorer browser, and go to msn.com, what happens?
If it fails, Please do the instructions below. Using your Windows Control Panel, please do:
Internet Options -> Advanced Tab Please click the "Reset" button.
Then, Go to the Connections Tab.
Make sure that the only checkbox checked is "Automatically detect settings", then click the "OK" button.
Close any open Internet Explorer browser windows, open a new IE browser window and try msn.com again. What happens? If it works, please stop/start Skype What happens?
3. If Step 2 does NOT solve the problem:
Please install the beta version using the instructions below:
You can install the Current beta release by doing this from the top of this page:
Get Skype -> Windows -> Choose the beta release, please do NOT remove what you already have installed, simply, install over.
These instructions have worked for many and is the quickest thing to try to resolve issues such as this.
Also, what operating system are you on?
What is the Make and Model of your computer?
Do you have all Windows updates and updates to any hardware devices by the manufacturers?
I have the Thrive also but this isn't a windows tab it is a Android 3.1 running the latest version of Honeycomb. Will the steps you suggested work? Do not have my tab with me right now to test this.
Do you know if there has been an update in the works so skype will working on the Toshiba Thrive AT105-T1016 which is running the latest version of Android Honeycomb 3.1???
I'm very disappointed that I purchased this tablet and it won't video skype.
The problem is Skype has not finished the effort to ensure a proper experience with Android 3.x tablets.
Until then, I deleted Skype from my Thrive. Google Talk does offer video chat, although I have yet to use it, and it appears to miss many features of Skype.
Skype did recently add video support for Android 2.x phones, so I am hopeful.
It works! Got an update on my Thrive and now I can video call with it. My husband and I just talked using video call and yes, we were both able to see each other using the front camera... This is fantastique! Thank you, who ever you are, to have solved the issue. I love my Thrive even more, now!
