Video test Webcam site

I need to test my Webam to confirm that I can both send and receive video calls. Could someone please tell me the name of a Web site that I can use to make a video call?

Unfortunately, there isn't any.  At least not for use with Skype.

 

You'll have to find someone who also has Skype and is willing to add you to their Contacts list.

I have the same question. How would we sign each other up as contacts?  You could call me and visa versa to test video image.  my username is bafried.  yours?

It's astonishing that a popular application with millions of users and owned by one of the world's largest corporations lacks a testing facility for an essential feature. The absence of a video test site forces a user to impose upon the time, generosity and privacy of another user.

If you have a spare computer, you could set up a separate Skype account on it, and call 'yourself'.

I don't know if you were joking or not but I actually do Skype to myself between my PC and my wife's when I need to run a quick test.

 

I do agree it would be great if Skype saw fit to provide some test servers for video.  I'm holding my breath though.

Not joking....I often use it to check out audio levels, latency, screen sharing quality etc.

Re: Video test Webcam site

Do both computers need to have a webcam installed? All I wnt to test is that my picture is going TO the other side. I have already verified that I can receive video FROM the other side.

I hope everyone is joking, just go to the Skype tab, profile, change sounds, go to video, and there ya go! also, if you wanna test skype video call bill-on-skype-video-echo, a robot meant for it.
