I have used Skype for many, many years. Suddenly, it does not work properly, if at all. I have replaced at least 6 webcams, and I do not believe they can all be faulty.
I run XP, as I always have.
This is what is happening:
Sometimes Skype will start, but without sound, or without video. If it DOES connect, other party cannot hear me, and sometimes they can hear me and I can't here them.
When my Skype occasionally tries to work, video turns green.
I can't believe ALL my webcams, or sounds, can be faulty.
Anyone got some ideas, please?
PS - computer seems to be working ok. So Far.....
Skypem had an update which came through Microsoft a few days ago. If you use automatic updates you may not have noticed. has something gone wrong with the update. I had a problem with my laptop update and had to download a new version of Skype manually.
As Chronus suggests give it a try
