Re: Skype Camera won't work

More details please.   For starters:

 

What type webcam?

 

What version of Skype?  Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.

 

If you click on Tools > Options > Video settings, what does it say in the Select webcam box?   And do you see your own video on that page?

I'm having the same trouble.

My webcam is a Logitech HD 1080

 

I am on a Mac, and my Skype version is: 6.0.0.2968

 

Thanks for any clues.

You will have much better chance to get an answer if you post Mac related questions on the Mac forum:
