cannot see my video in Skype 6.0 call using windows 8

After installing Windows 8 and Skype 6.0 on my net book, I can no longer see my video during a video call.  I can see the distant video, the distant end can see my video, but I can't.  I double checked the driver and all settings, but this provided no relief. The webcam was working perfectly with Windows 7 and Skype.

I might add that my desktop using Windows 8 is working perfectly, but with an outboard USB webcam.

If your contact can see your video then this means that your webcam is working. What do you see when in Skype you go to Tools -> Options -> Video settings?

nlion92,

 

Sounds like you are using modern version of Skype.

 

To access the Tools menu install desktop client and join it.
