In the box where my video should show there is instead a still photo of some random city by the water, looks like Venice maybe? Where did this photo come from and how do I get rid of it? I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting my webcam to different USB ports, same result. People on the other end of my calls see only this photo instead of my video. I did nothing to change any settings, this photo simply appeared a couple of days ago when I went to make a Skype call and now it is always there. Any suggestions?

What you are seeing must be something what your webcam’s software or another 3rd party application is producing. Skype is not making photos of Venice or other exotic cities. What is the model of your webcam?

even dhow it is in computer programs. It did not operate with skype.where is problem and how to sort ot out please help ar advice. Regards jojose
I have and intergrated webcam and when I first started Skype up it was working, but then I tried a call and my camera would stop working. I could hit a button looking like a video camera and it would come back up for a bit, then disappear again, finally the button going away.
