I used skype in dec 2009, and it was very easy and quick to use. But in the past few days, I tryed to use it again, and I am having all sorts of trouble. First I can't figure out how to get my video window open before the call. I wanted to set up some lighting so it wasn't too dark for the videocall, but what do I click on to make it appear??
Also, I can receive calls but can't call out. I press on the call button, but nothing happens. So I have to wait for the other person to call me.
Frustrating! Lots more little issues like this. What do I do? The directions online just don't work. Thanks in advance.
As far as seeing what your side of the conversation will look like, I usually go to the menu and Skype > Preferences (or command-comma), and click Audio/Video.
That should show you what you need to see to prepare
