Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

I have decided to close the other thread Skype is not working on new iOS 10.9 Mavericks, because the original issue was about an issue with Skype on a developer preview of Mavericks, and this has been fixed.

 

If you are having issues with the latest version of Skype on Mavericks, I would like to invite you to post your comments / logs in here :happy:

Please do not send me a private message about your crashes: do that in the main forums instead.
If Skype is crashing, please check this thread.
If this doesn't fix your problem, please check how to report a crash/hang, or any other issue

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

Latest version of skype worked once after installing mavericks (upgrade from 10.8.5) Now, it opens but doesn't let me go online. I reverted back to antediluvian Skype 2.8 and it works fine. I am behind a proxy here. (at home it DOES work fine in latest version without a proxy) Mavericks has introduced a myriad of proxy bugs from what I can read in different forms. A big bg - unrelated to skype - is the impossibility of using software update (App Store) and Safari is terribly slow. I hoe you at Skype and apple can fix the proxy debacle soon. 2.8 looks absolutely prehistoric and I want to go back to v.6 and hope to see a better designed v.7 in the near future.

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

SKype 6.9 (517) causes Mavericks to have a BSD (blue screen of death). Happened twice during a video call.

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

Skype for Mac Version 6.9 (517) has bugs, but I think they started a week or so before mavericks 10.9 came out.   

 

Problems:

 - If skype is running for a long time + you're on a call.   You can no longer type in the skype windows.  Just get the pinwheel.   If it does let you type, it's about 5 seconds between letters showing up.

- Upon having the other person hang up the call (not possible on this end) - skype will allow you to type again normally.  Everything seems ok.

- Next, if you try to quit skype.   It will close out of the windows, but skype will remain running until it is force quit.

 

Computer specs:

MacPro 2x 2.8 quad core

10GB Ram 

OS X 10.9

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

[ Edited ]

Awful problems with skype (latest version) however I noticed them a day before I updated to Mavericks. However now the issues have escalated.. skype hangs in the dock and will not open for a good 5 minutes or so, having to force quit each time.

 

I'm also having the severe crash problems - and my macbook pro never usually crashes on skype. 

Typing after a while, whilst in a call crashes and I have to then attempt to restart it.

 

As of this morning Im now getting 'Skype quit unexpectidly' which isn't making my morning to say the least. 

 

Would really appreciate a fix soon as Ive never had these issues before and I depend on skype at some point during the day.. 

 

Specs:

-Macbook pro 13", bought July this year (2011 model)

-4gb of RAM

-400+ gb of HD memory

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

I have a new Mac Book Pro (2013), running Mavericks (OS X 10.9) - the video worked for about 20 seconds, and now the built in camera refuses to turn on (this is after a restart). From the other side, I was able to see the other participant's camera on screen just fine, the audio was perfect, so it's apparently Mavericks not happy with the camera. It sees the camera there, but doesn't want to turn it on again since that first attempt.

 

Otherwise, no crashing or other issues on a 45 min Skype call.

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

Hi guys,

 

We all know the problems with Skype 6.9, but on my 2013 13' MBA, i cannot revert to an older version of Skype (6.8 or 6.3) because they will not recognise my camera. On Skype 6.8 my camera is only recognised once, and not at all on Skype 6.3. I updated to OSX 10.9 without undoing the 10.8.5 camera hack and maybe this is why. However, i have reinstalled a fresh OSX 10.9 and the problem still persists. 6.9 starts to freeze after 30 min and this is very frustrating as i have to skype a loved one far away. 

 

Does anyone have similar issues? Can anyone offer a solution? I'm always checking for the latest version of Skype to see if they've fixed it. I have spent 10 hours trying to solve this problem, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

Skype doesn't work on Mavericks.  I am talking with friends then all of a sudden skype says application not responding. I then force close it and it keeps bouceing in the dock. When I look in activity monitor it shows that Skype is using almost 100% CPU usage. Please fix this microsoft :sad:

Re: Skype issues on Mavericks (OSX 10.9)

Hi there!

I've just updated to OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Skype will not recognise my camera during video calls. I'm running a Macbook 13 Unibody Mid 2010.

I have no other issues...sounds fine, I can see the other person on my screen, does not hang up, can chat...no problem.

 

I confirmed the problem is only on Skype. When I enter the audio/video config screen the camera starts up just fine.
