Video not working

I recently updated my skype to version 5.9.0.115 I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I am trying to skype with a Mac user. We have never had a problem until I updated. I can see myself in the lower right corner and I can see them. They can hear me but not see me.

 

If I go to Tools-->Options and click on the video button, I can see myself and all diagnostics seem to work. Why can't they see me? They are able to see and talk to other contacts. I have not been able to contact anyone else. This is very frustrating.

Re: Video not working

Anyone have any suggestions? It is an integrated webcam and the webcam is working just fine - why can't my contact see me? I would like to get this resolved asap. Is there an older version of skype I can revert back to?

Re: Video not working

had the same problem. I uninstalled Skype and then downloaded version 5.5.0.124 and now everything works again. You can download this version from the link below.

Skype has been unresponsive. Very disappointed because it seems many people have run into this problem.

TERRIBLE SERVICE FROM SKYPE, I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME VIDEO ISSUE WITH NO RESOLUTION ON HERE FOR MAC, ONLY ON PC.

 

I have downgraded and installed older version and its still does not work. Facetime, MSN, and even my work supplied video Calling work super fine but not skype.

 

Whats the point of sending out and update to customers/users when its not been properly tested on all devices.

Re: Video not working

Glad to know I am not the only frustrated user.  Skype works on my iPhone, iPad and Photo Booth so the video camera is not the problem.  

Sometimes when I reinstall Skype it works but not a permanent fix.  Only works once then next call there is no video.

Is this problem only on Mac's?

You probably will stand a better chance of getting an answer if you post your problem in the Mac forum, rather than here in Windows territory.  :wink:
