Ok I am extremely frustrated with this problem. First, please be aware that last week I was successfully using my Lifecam Cinema in widescreen with Skype v22.214.171.124. But for whatever reason, that is no longer the case, and I'm not quite sure why, or how to get it working again.
The problem seemed to start after I had installed a portable version of Skype v4.2 (separate from v126.96.36.199). After that I have not been able to get my Lifecam Cinema in widescreen, even with the trick that you used to do to enable widescreen. I have tried uninstalling Skype, manually removing left over files and folders, and reinstalling Skype. And also the webcam. But no dice. Still can't get it back in widescreen. Normally when I would go to Options > Video, the preview would be widescreen.
Does anyone have any other ideas for what I can do to try and get my Lifecam Cinema back in widescreen?
By the way, I am aware that the Lifecam Cinema is not officially supported for HD with Skype, and that there are certain cams out there that are, but I greatly prefer the quality of the Lifecam Cinema.
I have a Lifecam Studio and it won't do widesceen on Skype.. Very disappointing. It's a superior quality picture compared to the other cameras.
50meg internet connection, 7.4 Windows Experience Index score, but no widescreen on Skype (editing config.xml back in version 4.x gave me widescreen no problem, but doesn't work anymore)
Same problem here. What's even more disconcerting is that there's no reply from a Skype representative. As if they couldn't care less about Lifecam users!
