Re: skype video chat

Hi,
Check your Skype Options settings at:
Skype Tools--> Options--> Video Settings
Make sure: "Enable Skype Video" is enabled,
and
"Start my Video when I am on a call" is enabled.

See if that helps.

Re: skype video chat

I advise you to reinstall Skype, After installation, open Skype. In the top menu bar, go to TOOLS. In the TOOLS menu, scroll down to OPTIONS. In OPTIONS, check ENABLE SKYPE VIDEO and select your camera from the dropdown menu at the top. In the same OPTIONS window, hit the TEST WEBCAM button afterwards. Adjust your camera lens (if available) to get a sharp picture for the current distance. Use the Webcam Settings to access the webcam?s own settings page. Hit close afterwards.
If you need more information on how to set up video chat in Skype visit Skype Video Tutorial.
