When was the last time video worked ?
I see, are you in full screen mode?
Got it, give me a few minutes ok?
if you look in the botem right hand corner do you see a really small square?
It would be really small if full screen, if you click it, it makes it bigger and that should show you.
Or a small square anywhere around the video, I think you minimized it by mistake, look carefully, it wont look like much but it should be there.
interesting, and the other person can see you huh? Try giving it a reboot, if you are streaming video and the other party sees it, then that square (should) show it....i got my mac out and skyped myself and did not see any other areas to change it.
I can see that being annoying, let me call my self again -=]
on the MAC it seems to be pretty cut and dry, do you happen to have two cameras? If not, i'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling skype, or better yet check for an update.....when skype is open go to Skype in the top left hand corner and go down to check for updates.
Perhaps, what ever it is its a pretty odd error. Again, do you have more than one camera on the laptop? I'm pretty sure you do not...
i figured as much, I'm a little perplexed.
is the other person using a tablet by chance?
Skype can, and often does have issues. Now internet speeds WILL effect skype greatly
If either party has slow internet for what ever reason, skype just turns to garbage....one thing to consider is getting a skype alternative, like one from google, it actually works better.....I use to work at eBay when they owned Skype, and even we didint use it....
I'll be back to check on you in abit.
