I have a Mac. When I make skype video calls, my party sees me, but I can't see them. They have a Mac air computer.
It is so frustrating....Can anyone help please...
This is really annoying! Would someone please DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I recently updated my Skype to the latest version, and I'm getting HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE video calls -- takes 3 or 4 tries to actually see the other person on the other end, plus it's SO **bleep** SLOWWWW if I do get a picture (same computer, same connection as before). What's going on with SKYPE? I've been a Skype user for years, and I have to admit that this is as bad as it gets! Very dissapointed . . .
It seems I have the same problem as many of you. I have only used Skype a few times before and that was on my old PC and it all worked fine. I recently brought a 27" iMac and now i cant get Skype video to work properly.
The other person can see me and we can both hear clearly - but i do not get an image on my screen, it is just black.
However, if i click on the help button, the help scren opens and there is a "small" video image of my friend there. I can then close the help screen taking me back to the black screen with the "small" video image in the centre of the screen. There are no controls to increase the size and it is really too small to be of much good.
Does anyone..... like a Skype technician read and answer these questions - or is it up to us to muddle our way around until someone comes up with an answer?
I'm having the same problem. I have a MacBook Pro and everything is latest version. I can see the other party, but they can't see me. My settings are correct, and when I check Skype/Preferences/audio video - the webcam works fine.
Need help please!
