I am using the skype 5.10...version.
The integ webcam on my HP pavilion g6 was working fine until recent and then suddenly it started giving the error ' can't connect to webcam, is used by another program'...which is not true. Same thing happened y'day on my other Acer laptop which is a USB webcam. It was using fine and when i made a new video call, then bam! the error msg. Can someone help me on this.
