Issue#793: Skype - Video calling not working on any of my devices

  • I have lost the ability to do video calls on my laptop, my droid phone, and my tablet.  My laptop says Skype cannot find the camera, and my droid phone lets me see the person I am talking to but does not video my end of the conversation.  My tablet also shows the camera with a line through it indicating it is not available.  Don't understand why it is a problem on all three devices.  Can anyone help?

  • Issue#54666: Skype - Not seeing caller on video calling on android phone

    I have a Samsung s5. I downloaded the app yesterday and was able to use Skype video calling where I could see caller and caller could see me. Tried it today and caller could see me but I couldn't see caller but could see me. We both tried calling one another and the same thing happened. What do I need to do to see the caller my video icon was on. Do I need to uninstall the app and reinstall it to solve the problem? Skype version is 6.1

  • Issue#58766: Skype - Video not working on the small screen

    When I video call with my language tutor (who lives in Germany) the main screen works fine and we can see/hear each other with no problem. but I've recently been having issues with the little screen, sometimes it works but often it doesn't and all I get is a little warning triangle. So when we're working on google docs I can't see my tutor as the little screen isn't working. I have another tutor who lives in the USA and I've had no problems with the main or small screens when Skyping her so I'm not sure if it's an issue with my Skype or my tutor's Skype in Germany. Is it worthwhile re-installing Skype?

  • Issue#59727: Skype - My report and issues found with Group Video Calling on Mobile

    So heres my report. The other two people I used are named David and Jessica. You can see David's face but Jessica only showed her ceiling and cat out of shyness. Anyway, I did this test on an LG V10, specifications of the phone can be found here: First thing I noticed is that when the group video call started, my camera was very dark. In a one on one call with David, it was just fine. My guess is that while in the group video call, the sensor for the front facing camera does not work to brighten my face when I'm not directly sitting in front of a light source. I went over to my bed and turned on my lamp and faced it directly on my face, and where as you can see me, it's still rather faint. Below are some comparison screenshots between the group video call and the one on one call with David. Please note that although I say I'm sitting at my computer, the call is being held on my mobile. Screenshot of group video call while I'm s

  • Issue#78309: Skype - Video&Audion not working in Skype calls

    So I've downloaded the most recent version of skype and video seems to be fine in skype settings, audio seems to be fine too - when I call it makes the ringing noise but as soon as my contact hits to connect it says that there is a problem with my device, it won't even let me try with video. I've tested outside of skype within the mic and video camera on windows and they are installed and working perfectly. I can only think that skype is the problem, but as everything seems fine in skype settings and when I test - I just can't understand it. HELP ME!!! 

  • Issue#108823: Skype - Group video calls not working in versions with new UI (6.25+)

    I have seen a ton of posts on this (albeit worded differently). The solutions are reported to work, however, I have tried all of the ones that I have come across and none of them work. Granted, I have only come across about 300 solutions so I may just have to dig deeper. Basic thing, a while back (on versions of Skype between 6.0 and under 6.25), it was announced that you did not need premium to do video in group calls. That appears to have come back in the versions with the new UI. Solution? Download and install the old version of Skype. This worked on my old computer, but now I have gotten my hands on a shiny new computer. I tried running the installer for the old version and it cannot connect to the download server. I decided to try doing group video on the new version and there is no video option. Either it is broken or it wants money I don't have at the moment. Nobody in the group has an old version of Skype, nobody has Linux, nobody has it on mobile, nobody in the group owns
