I last used skype on my Toshiba lap top several months ago without issue. I am attempting to use skype but it is not detecting my video camera. The camera is built into my computer. When I video call people, I can see and hear them, but they can not see or hear me. I am unsure of what I need to do to fix this issue. I cannot find on the device manager what the camera is listed under since it is built in with the computer. Any ideas? I am trying to get this issue solved ASAP!
Do you have any other program with which you can test your webcam? If not, try this link:
What version of Skype do you have installed? Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.
Click on Tools > Options > Video settings. What does it say in the Select webcam box? And do you see your own video on that page?
I do not know what happened but for some reason it started working now! Thank you for your assistance anyway!

Try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the older 188.8.131.52 version using this msi-installer:
After installing this version, make sure to disable the Automatic updates:
Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates ->Turn off automatic updates
If your laptop is Dell XPS, then see also this:
The camera will not pan down enough to see the user when he is sitting on the couch..
Can I add an outboard, USB camera and use that instead of the TV's built in camera?
TV is a Samsung UN60F7500.
Any help would be so very appreciated..
