skype with computer

To skype computer to computer do you need a land line? If not how do you get the computer to call the other computer?

Skype is using your Internet connection. You don't need to have a landline.

Re: skype with computer

I can't figure out how it works.  It doesn't give me a video chat option. I'm really confused. I have it downloaded on my computer but can't get it to work.

Re: skype with computer

Do you have a webcam connected to your computer?

 

In Skype go to Tools -> Options -> Video settings? What do ypou see there?

Re: skype with computer

You need first to add your friend as a contact on your Skype, and then you will be able to make a video call to your friend's Skype.
