    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#6179: Skype - Skype 7.18 stops working as soon as I open it.

    There, Everything was fine, until today, when I installed the latest version of skype. After I rebooted my computer, I get a message that skype has stopped working. I open it again only to see the loading orbs freeze while I get the message again. I tried debuging skype, only to find exceptions at a certain value because of a certain MSVCR80.dll file. I tried looking for the problem here but all the solutions available didn't work for me. I tried installying 7.17 or 7.13 but the result was the same. I was going to add a dxdiag in a .zip file, but I'm getting an error when posting this: "The attachment's content type (application/x-download) does not match its file extension and has been removed."

  • Issue#7611: Skype - Chats not working? Check here

    There are various reasons why chats in Skype for Windows desktop might stop working. One of the most common ones we have seen recently is caused by your local "hosts" file being edited to block access to Skype servers. Background info: What is that hosts file? This file is used to map hostnames to IP addresses and can be used to re-direct traffic for (sub-)domains to certain IP addresses. This can be used for good (local network services, reducing external traffic) and bad (viruses, phishing) intentions.Read more in the wikipedia article You can find your hosts-file at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts Open this file in any text editor application and scan it for any lines containing "skype", "hotmail" or "". Known entries causing problems are:   NB: Depending on which tool created these entries the IP address

  • Issue#9095: Skype - Skype 7.18 'stops working' after login

    Since the latest automatic update to Skype 7.18 the 'stopped working' message immediately appears after logging in and the program shuts down making it unusable.  I have only had Windows 10 for about 2 weeks and I sure Skype was ok before the latest update however I had only recently updated my motherboard drivers from the manufacturers site on advice from microsoft to address another issue.Since the problem started I have tried uninstalling/re-installing skype a number of times (which appeared to work first time but has now returned) and rolling back the audio driver that was updated recently from the motherboard manufacturer site. Neither have been successful.After browsing this community it appears the problem is rather widespread however have not yet been able to 'pinpoint' a specific fix as yet. Is there a permanent solution available? Or is there an older version I could try to see if that resolves the problem and eliminate the possiibility of the motherboard drive

  • Issue#10277: Skype - Group Chats not Working

    So this just happened today, as it was working perfectly fine yesterday.Whenever I try to add someone to the group chat, it will auto-end the call to them and they tell me that it doesn't show them added to the call.  I was added to a group chat by someone else to see if maybe it was just acting up for some reason and I get "Untitled Conversation" with apparently zero members in it, even though we're all in the call of the "Untitled Conversation."I uninstalled and reinstalled the Windows desktop client and it didn't seem to fix the issue.  I restarted Skype (exiting and reopening the application,) and this didn't work either.  I then tried restarting my computer thinking that the whole system may just need a reboot, didn't work either.Skype is a start-up program when I turn on my computer, so when it restarted it all the sudden placed me into the call, which had ended and I did not join, and then turned my computer's camera on.  I tried ending the call and it wouldn

  • Issue#11764: Logitech - H800 Wireless Headset - on Windows 10 - not working with Skype but working fine otherwise

    Have just purchased Logitech H800 Wireless Headset. Install on my Asus N60J Note Book with OS Windows 10. Is working fine on everthing except Skype. On skype neither the audio or microphone work at all. It seems to be someing with Skype and Windows 10.  I have reinstalled drivers, downloaded and installed the latest Skype, but still have a problem. I previous had a Logitech headset with a hard wired USB connection. This was also on Windows 10. It worked occasionally going on and off. Not getting a continuous signal.  On that basis my retailed allowed me to change headsets to the H800. One ot the reasons was that it specifically mentioned Skype compatible on the packaging. As I have mentioned above this one does not work at all with Skype. I hope you can help me. Regards Jeremy Hooper (Perth Australia)

  • Issue#20938: Skype - Auto signin stopped working after password change

    So, previously, I had a particular password for Skype and had it set up so that it would automatically sign in on startup. For personal reasons, I've recently had to change my password a few times. Ever since then, my Skype won't automatically sign me in. Whenever I open up Skype, I'm met with "Sorry, we didn't recognize your sign-in details. Please check your Skype Name and password, then try again." Which means it seems to still have the old password saved and is trying (and failing) to log in with that. However, there is no option for me to change or update my password. I still have my sign-in name saved, I can select that, but it doesn't pull up any password when I do. I have no issues signing in if I do it manually but it seems there's no way to get it to accept my new password and save it to sign in automatically. My sign in window has the seven icons which advertise Microsofts different services, under that is the message i posted above. Below that is a drop down which
