For some weeks now, my webcan doesn't work with skype anymore (it's an integrated webcam, on a Dell laptop, using windows 7). When I try to launch my webcam in skype, I have a black screen, with my cursor turning into this typical circle turning on itself indefinitely.
I already checked a few things:
- My webcam already works in at least one other application (Dell Webcam Central).
- I uninstalled and reinstalled Skype.
- I have DirectX 11.
- In theory the pilots of my webcam are up-to-date (I went into the control panel, image device, and checked pilot was up-to-date).
- No other application seems to use my webcam (when my webcam is on, I have this little white light indicator, so I make sure it's off when I try to launch my webcam in skype. When launching my webcam in skype, the white light indicator appears, but I only get a black screen.
If anybody sees how to fix it...
Ok, I found the answer on the forum. The solution is to downgrade, because last skype update is bugged for Dell XPS.
