Having both opened Skype accounts and installed and sound tested our installations my son ( in Ireland ) and I ( in Germany )were looking forward to regular chats. Skype to Skype conversations both on our computers and landlines are really good, but we can't get any Webcam images, even though both Webcams have the blue lights illuminated suggesting all is well. Any suggestions please.?
Or, when one person has clicked on Start my Video and the 'receiving' person cannot see that pic, the receiving person should then click on Menu in the 'sending' persons area in the Skype main window, and then scroll down the options to click on, 'View video' - though mine is not on at the moment and I cannot remember if it just says View or View video, old-age you know!
Then the other person should do the same at their end.
Fitted extra memory last night, but it was a total failure. Every time I tried to action Skype I was given an error message which was sent to Microsoft. Even on some normal applications the same thing happened. Replaced the original memory and all worked as usual.
