Skype Webcam Freezes Up-Why?

  Kooji 06:47 13 Jul 2009

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone can advise please-I've recently loaded an old webcam (Labtec)which I've had for years and never used- to use with Skype. However after around 1 minute, the whole computer freezes up completely. Is there a way to prevent this? Idiot proof answers greatly appreciated please.-Kooji.

Could you borrow a different one to try? Which version of Skype do you have?

Hi oldbeefer2

I'll guess it's better to scrap the old Webcam and try again with a better model and some later software. so many thanks for you reply. I will post the results once I get things set up.

If you intend to use it a lot, I recommend the Logitech Pro 9000. Bit on the pricey side for only occasional use in which case a cheaper Logitech would be my choice.
