So that's my problem: I've got my new pc with windows 8 on it and called a friend on skype. I saw him perfectly but he told me that, even though my webcam seemed to be working perfectly, he wasn't able to see me. Is that because he has an older version of skype than this one? Afterwards I checked webcam and everything but it seemed to be alright...
Ask your friends to reinstall latest skype with this link
I am not sure. But Skype recommends it.
Are you running the "Metro" version of Skype from the Windows store, or the desktop version?
The app store one. I tried to download the normal desktop one but it told me that I could only get the app store version - and on that one it's impossible to even find any settings and stuff -.- windows 8.....
ok I've managed to install the dt version now so tomorrow we will see if it works like this. thanks for the help guys!!
Please use the direct link (see my first post) to download the latest versions of skype
i gave you the offline installer. just click on the link i have given above, and download it on your "desktop"
when you got it, double click on it (run) and start installation.
Try this link: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full The desktop version works here.
If you can't install the desktop version, I'm at a loss.
