Webcam keeps freezing in video calls

Recently, when I am in a video call, when the LED refresh on my webcam (Logitech C270)  happens, my video occasionally freezes. Sometimes it un-freezes on its own when the next refresh happens, but other times I have to manually restart my video.

 

How can I solve this so my camera stops freezing? Any answers are appreciated!

Re: Webcam keeps freezing in video calls

The same happens here. on two different computers.

The webcam keeps switching from SD->HD and also freezes me in awkward situations. It seems to me Skype has some special feature which freezes the video if you open your mouth, roll your eyes strangely etc.
