My webcam stop working after the latest update to skype March or April 2013
My webcam (Logitech Fusion) still works with other programs, I can't understand why it stop working with skype.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled skype, I've checked for updates to my webcam, there aren't any.
My webcam worked just fine with skype before I updated skype.
Has anyone else had this happen to them, and how did you correct the issue?
Yer kind of same here.
I just updated Skype and for some reason it has zoomed me in. I was on this about 3 hours ago and it was fine, I havn't touched anything on my laptop, it has just on it own zoomed in.
Any suggestions before I do a full rage quit?
Same here... Logitec HD C270.
Uninstalled + reinstalled skype, but no difference. If I try to check viedo settings in Tools, it immediately generates an error message about warning Microsoft and exits skype. I can, however, see others without problems.
I think I have this problem too. I several time tried my configurations, but I take videos, but can't send mine, everythink is up to date and my camera was working until this new update of skype. Now if I send my video, windows has stop working and it crashes. Can someone help please.

Same thing happend to me today.....please do let me know how to fix this pbm. It was working absolutely perfect before the update.
My cam has fixed itself. What I actually did was just completely shut off skype, quit and all and then logged in again. Worked for me.
However I have realised that the capturing image i.e. your recording image on the bottom right is more rectangualar than normal, same situation with my friend.
I have exactly the same problem. Everything was fine till I upgraded to the latest Skype client on 6th of April 2013. I restarted my computer, shutdown the Skype and still the same problem. Your solution work in testing Video mode, as soon you use the camera in a video call it freezes to a still image.
I think new skype has a bug, Do you guys know whether one can go back to previous version.
Thanx for the idea, Droshani!
I uninstalled the new version and went back to 6.1. Haven't tried videocall yet, but if I go to video settings in Tools, it doesn't collapse as it used to, so it might even work :- )
