I have cyberlink youcam installed on my laptop and I wants to use this instead of using integrated Truecam HD camera. Some one told me to go to  skype main window->Tools->Options->Video settings and there I can select CyberLink Youcam from the drop down list. But I can't find Cyberlink youcam there. only one web cam listed on video settings page is HP Truevision HD and there is no drop down box.

 

Can someone please help me, How can I ingtegrate my cyberlink youcam with skype video call??

 

I have seen in my friends laptop, while making a video call he can switch between integrated cam and cyberlink youcam, but he also don't know how he did this.

 

please help me

Thanks and regards

Not a single reply for so many days........!! Thats strange.

 

Any ways I fixed the problem myself, so posting here for others who are facing the same problem.

 

I uninstalled my CyberLink YouCam and downloaded the latest version, in my case the latest version is CyberLink YouCam 3.5.5.5822 and after installing the latest version I was able to select CyberLink Youcam under Skype>Tools>Options>Calls>Video Settings>Select Webcam.

 

There under dropdown list I was able to select my CyberLink YouCam.

 

Cheers.

CyberLink Youcam is not a product of Skype.  It's an external/third party software so in cases of problems with that program, it would be best to contact their own customer support.

Hi, I recommend using ManyCam software since it is pretty widely used and confirmed to work well with Skype. Just make sure you choose ManyCam Virtual Cam in video options.

Please try it and say if it works for you.

Is you webcam listed in the device manager?
Which version of Skype are you using?
Can you please provide logs as described in this link https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12321/how-do-i-create-log-files under Skype for Windows Desktop and attach it to your post?

 

It is not a real camera, it is a virtual camera so not all the available sotware webcam filters are supported. ManyCam for example is.

Thank you
