So I just got started with Skype, so there is a possibility I have a setting not clicked or something. I have version 188.8.131.52 of skype and I have a Hp WebCam 3100 with built in microphone. When I go to call or receive a call, I can automatically see the other persons video and hear them, they can hear me but not view me and it says my video isn't connected on their screen, and in the bottom right hand side of screen, I can see my video of me talking. As I move the mouse and a display kinda tab pops up showing 4 symbols of video, sound, an "X" symbol, and a disconnect symbol, if I click the video symbol it says my video is turned off(even though I can see my video of me in the right hand corner of the screen. When I go to options, I can 'test' my video and it shows my video, even when I first downloaded Skype it showed my video right off the start. I honestly can't find out what is causing my video to be turned off when I'm completely connected. I have no other programs running that is using the web cam and when I bought the web cam, on the box it even says its compatible with Skype....... Any one that knows what am I doing wrong or not clicking would be so much of a help. Thank you
Do you have the problem with just that one contact or more than one?
If you click on the webcam/video button on the toolbar at the bottom of the Skype window to toggle your video off and then click it again to toggle it back on, does that make any difference? Sometimes that will help jump start video that doesn't start on its' own.
Well....first, are you on a Windows machine when you're having the problem? (Your post here said "Posted from generic Android device.")
If so, as I asked the original poster (who never replied) are you having the same problem with just one contact or with many?
What version of Skype are you running? Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.
And when on a call, do you see your own video in your picture-in-picture?
I'm using a Macbook Pro. I was working beautifully but ever since I did an upgrade on OS system, no one can see me but i can see them. I tried uninstalling and re-installing Skype but still no luck. Not sure whatelse to do.
and yes it is a recent version of skype and no I dont see the my own video in the picture-in-picture. The processing circle keeps running as if its forever loading.
