Lifecam VX 3000 not working with Skype

I have Lifecam VX 3000 connected to Windows XP computer. Lifecam works with computer but not with Skype I just installed. Audio seems to work correctly just no video in Skype. Any suggestions for solution would be greatly appreciated.

You can install ManyCam

Choose ManyCam as the audio source

 

In Skype, Click Tools >> Options... >> Audio settings >> Select ManyCam Virtual Microphone.

Re: Lifecam VX 3000 not working with Skype

It's a SHAME! VX 3000 works fine for a YEARS on my old mom PC! It's just stopped working after new "improved" version of Skype...

What kind of "improvement" you did, Microsoft? Are you pushing people to buy a new cam?

Re: Lifecam VX 3000 not working with Skype

This is a known issue with the latest (6.2/6.3) Skype versions and some older Windows systems.

 

Try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the older 6.1.0.129 version using this msi-installer:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.1.0.129.msi

 

After installing this version, make sure to disable the Automatic updates:

 

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates ->Turn off automatic updates
