VIDEO CANNOT SEE MYSELF

I've got a problem with my video. It's a intuix camera. The person I call can see me, but I cannot see myself on my computer. The only thing I see is about 10 screens of myself together in 1 screen. Who can give me an answer?

How does your video look if you click on Tools > Options > Video settings?

 

Do you happen to have an nVidia display adapter?

When I click options and video settings all is ok. The problem only occurs when I use video calling with someone. Then I cannot see myself. I only see about 10 screens of myself in one screen. I don't have a videa adapter

Re: VIDEO CANNOT SEE MYSELF

What version of Windows do you have?

 

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

 

Any chance you could take a screen grab of what you're seeing an upload it here?

First, try updating to the current version, 5.8.0.156.  You can download then run the full installer from this link:

 

http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

If the problem still happens, find out what display adapter you're using.  (You do have one or you wouldn't have any video at all).

 

Right click on My Computer on your desktop.  Click Manage.

 

Click Device Manager.

 

In the right hand column, click the + sign next to Display Adapters.

What does it say under Display Adapters?

A display adapter is the hardware in your PC that generates your display...what you see on your monitor.  I can't explain it any better than that.

 

I've given you steps to follow to see what display adapater that you have, including a picture of where it's found in Device Manager.  

 

That's the best I can do.  Maybe someone else will jump in with help that is clearer for you.
