I am trying to Skype video with my sister. Both on macs. mine newer, hers older.
We both see our cameras, until the call answers, then the video is turned off and a message icon says "your video is turned off" . it cannot be turned on. Clicking the video on button has a split second of video, then camera is off and the message returns. Skype is set up to allow video from anyone, and to enable video and start video automatically.
I was able to Video skype on my sister's computer before I sent it to her. Could this be a port issue? Do I need to go into her router and enable some ports?
My video works fine calling others.
This seems to be a recurring problem. I'm having exactly the same.
Maybe it's time for Skype tec to look at the issue... sounds like a glich in their programming
I have exactly the same problem with the videocam turning off and my friend in Ghana has it as well.my computer is also a mac. so please skype get it sorted out it is your fault as it happens to a lot of people
Same problem. Using 10.6.8 and tried updating skype, updating my software, restarting my computer, deleting 3 files mentioned in another post, and nothing. Guess I'm headed back to Google Talk.
We're having the same problem with a relative in India. We thought it might be a bandwidth issue. We have an iMac running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Skype 126.96.36.1992. I believe our relative is using a Mac, too. I will ask the next time we attempt.
