I have an Apple MAC. This is the first time I've posted on the Skype community and my problem is similar. I successfully video Skype my youngest son (MAC -MAC) and we are using version 2.8.0.851 (2010 version).

 

In the past I have successfully Skyped my older son and other friends (MAC - PC (ie non MAC) but now this is not working. One has told me he's using 4.0 and the other says he has version 6 and they both can video Skype their own friends (all non -Apple users)

 

What should I do? Am I the problem because I have a MAC? I have a delightful grandson that I haven't 'seen' for a long time so desparate to get this sorted.

 

Would really appreciate any advice. I imagine these contacts would be reluctant to fiddle with the settings they currently have, because they are successfully video Skyping already.

My problem is more or less the same. With the version  6.8.0.351 of skype  the video gets frozen after few seconds. I tried to quit imessage, facetime...but nothing!

 

Returning to the former version of skype is such a big failure for skype. 

In any case, please let me know whether this problem has been fixed...and of course how!!

 

Thank you very much!

I downloaded ver. 6.11.60.455 and it does not display a video icon anywhere when I signed in.  How do I make video call with this version on iMac?  Very frustrating.
