Re: OS X 10.8.5 Broke Skype Video

Thanks for the info.. How do you share the screen?  When I try to share screen nothing happens, it wont allow you to click the option..

 

Thoughts?

Re: OS X 10.8.5 Broke Skype Video

Hey I just tested the screen share option, at first the option to share the screen was grayed out, but after a minute in call the option became enabled and I could click on it and share the screen with face time video capture on it. So just wait a bit on-call and don't panic at all.


P.S.: my skype is also set to english language, I read some issues on screen share beeing used with other languages.

Right, but the problem is video chat with PC users, so this doesn't help.

Re: OS X 10.8.5 Broke Skype Video

Hi to All

 

i have the same problem, but i have found a solution !!

1. You need Time Machine

2. Go to folder /Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-Ins/DAL/ 

3. Copy AppleCamera.plugin to good place (usb memory stick is the best place).

4. Go to Time machine in date that skype work fine.

5. Change AppleCamera.plugin with file from Time Machine

6. Restart system, Now skype need to work with camera.

 

This solution is only for this time until Apple make update for this problem !!!!

Re: OS X 10.8.5 Broke Skype Video

This is a very simple fix that works! There are lots of ways to do it, but to put it very simply,

 

Download  the AppleCamera.plugin provided.

 

Click on go in the finder menu, select go to golder and paste in  /Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-Ins/DAL/ ,

 

move that item, AppleCamera.plugin, to the trash

 

Go to your downloads folder and copy the new  AppleCamera.plugin, then paste it in the folder where the old one was. 

 

It works

You don't need timme machine. Just copy the new  AppleCamera.plugin  and paste it in in place of the old one. Very simple fix!
