I last used skype on my Toshiba lap top several months ago without issue. I am attempting to use skype but it is not detecting my video camera. The camera is built into my computer. When I video call people, I can see and hear them, but they can not see or hear me. I am unsure of what I need to do to fix this issue. I cannot find on the device manager what the camera is listed under since it is built in with the computer. Any ideas? I am trying to get this issue solved ASAP!
Do you have any other program with which you can test your webcam? If not, try this link:
What version of Skype do you have installed? Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.
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 have a built in camera on my Dell inspiron laptop, suddenly it has stopped working and I can't seem to find it on my computer at all! It seems to have dissapeared off my computer completly but I can't seem to make it come back. It worked fine last week and suddenly I cannot find it on skype or my computer
I am totally lost! Can you help please??
Try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the older 188.8.131.52 version using this msi-installer:
After installing this version, make sure to disable the Automatic updates:
Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates ->Turn off automatic updates
