The newest versions of Skype will not work on my computer. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. Skype was working perfectly on the newer version but suddenly will not let me sign in. When signing in using the 5.3 version, I can audio chat but the video says "can't start video. Try closing other programs." There are no programs using the video. Help!
First thing to try is beta version 126.96.36.199. You can download the installer from here:
Does that version let you signin? If so, does video work?
