I wish I didn't need skype, but I have a boyfriend on the other side of the world and I teach piano through skype and hold meetings with my council via skype. Disappointing. It was never this bad.
maybe this post might help http://community.skype.com/t5/Mac/Video-call-scree
Hi, JessicaMarie, and welcome to the Community,
Please remember, this is, after all, the Skype for Mac message board! If you have a question related to a PC, please do post a new enquiry on this message board:
Please; no worries and don't feel bad! I only wanted to nudge you in the right direction! Your enquiry would not likely be seen on the Skype for Mac board any more than the Mac people do not frequent the Skype for Windows message boards.
