Can't view other peoples webcams

So when I try to vide chat with someone who has a webcam, the picture comes through all jarbled. I have tried firewall settings, anti virus settings, uninstalling, reinstalling, everything I can think of and it's not just one persons cam I can't see it's everyones cam I can't see. I attached a photo of what I see. Any advice will be appreciated, thanks.

The problem is with the latest nVidia graphic card video drivers. Probably the best solution is to revert to an older 280.26 driver. See this:
