Windows 8 web cam problems

I just got a new HP laptop with windows 8. When using skype I can see and hear my friends but they can only hear me, how can I fix this?

Re: Windows 8 web cam problems

Hi Shirls

I have the same problems I can try to give you two solutions

one: press start + I and go to settings - permissions and there you will see to turn on  the camera then you can see also in start+ I settings and options.

two : I just did this and skype works fine just download skype desktop the same skype for windows 7 o other windows you have.

Hope this work for you.

Good luck!
