Skype ActiveMovie Window

  Angry Kid 21:26 20 Sep 2007


I am currently using the latest version, and when using my webcam (Logitech Quickcam)I get the above mentioned window opening up on my screen. This is not happening within the Skype User Interface as previously. It opens up elsewhere on my desktop which is quite frustrating.

Can anyone recommend a fix.

I've had the same problem. Some guys on another helproom are saying the problem can be fixed by updating to the latest version of your Nvidia display driver. However, that didn't work for me. I fixed the problem (for the time being) by reinstalling an older version of Skype - V3.2.0.163. I think I will check for the latest version of Skype sometime in Nov-2007 to see if Skype has finally got around to fixing the problem by then.

A new version of Skype seems to be released virtually every other day, so no point in waiting for November...:-)

Thanks for your posts.

I am running the latest Beta version now and all appears fine.

Not been online for ages so apologies for the late posting.
