I can see them on video but my video keep saying its loading and never does

For some reason I can see the person I am talking to fine but on my end the video keeps saying loading and doesn't work for me the whole time. It just started doing this because I have always skyped before and never had a problem, and I did press video call. Please help because I need to skype with my lawyer!

What version of Skype are you running?  Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.

 

What type webcam?

 

If you click on Tools > Options > Video settings, do you see your own video there? 

 

What does it say in the Select webcam box?

If you have Dell XPS laptop then see this:

In any case, try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the older 6.1.0.129 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
