can't get video calling

I just installed skype and had my payment confirmed. Why then can I not get video calling? The drop down from 'call' is all greyed out except the call button. So I'm able to call but that's it .... no video, no forwarding, etc. 


How do I resolve this? frustrated.

Is your webcam working? What do you see when you go to Tools -> Options -> Video settings?

Re: can't get video calling

I am having exactly the same problem. The camera is working correctly according to my Control Panel, however when I go in to Tools - Options - Video Settings within Skype it tells me that a webcam cannot be found. Any help would be appreciated. Webcam is a Microsoft and only recently purchased.
