Web cam works fine when tested with other programs but when I try to use it with Skype it doesn't work at all.
When you go tools/options/video settings the web cam looks like it is starting then the web cam light goes on, and the image in the Skype video viewer goes white with no image.
I have gone on many forums and sites looking for an answer. I am not comfortable going to an older version if I have to go to a none skype site.
The computer is a m4700 with integrated webcam, with WebCamViewer 1.0 the camera works just fine.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I couldn't find much in the way of an updated driver for your webcam that might help. There is however a firmware update you can apply if you don't already have it (even if you aren't running Windows 8 ).
If for whatever reason the camera doesn't initialize properly in the latest version (6.5) then your only option would be to downgrade to a lower version or use an external webcam. Older versions are still available to resolve issues such as this.
