    Hello my friend,

    Please make sure that you have web cam installed in your system along with its driver because you cannot make video chats with out web cam.
    To overcome the wave and signals,check the settings of your skype.
    If problem persists uninstall skype and install it again.

    ALL THE BEST.

    Hello,

    Friend if you are seeing the waves or signals on your screen while talking on skype.

    Then there is a possibility that the network connection which you are using is malfunctioning.

    To check that try using skype of your computer with somebody elses internet connection.

    If the problem still persists than you should uninstall the skype and re install it.

    -regards

    Hello . .

    Video Calling Issues Are Common In Social Networking Site's

    Just Make Sure That The Sender And Receiver Both Have Webcam enabled ..

    You Have Two Types In Laptop's

    A Camera Which is given by the laptop itself which is in-built .

    Other Which can be set up externally . .

    See that your connection established is perfect !!

    Dear friend,

    ~~> This problem is commonly happen for lot of Skype users.
    ~~> Generally by default Windows XP installs webcam drivers but some CD's may not having required files.
    ~~> So again we need to install webcam drivers.
    ~~> Once install webcam drivers and use Skype.
    ~~> If possible try to use new version of Skype.
    NOTE: If you still have the problem your webcam may having problem contact your hardware provider.

    hey friend...

    This video call issue occurs because of many reasons:-

    1. It might be a server or network issue.
    2. You internet have a slow connection.
    3. Either you don't installed a webcam
    4. Or your friend don't have a webcam.
    5. May be you are using webcam but it does not have in build microphone.
    6. Calling without headset in case of missing microphone.

    Possible solutions are...

    1. Please check your server first that you are connected with the net properly or not.
    2. If you are connected, then also check out that your internet is providing you appropriate for video calling. if not then use high speed internet for video calling or some 3G plans.
    3. Please purchase a webcam if you don't have and also told to your friend because video call is only possible if both the parties have webcam.
    4. Keep sure that you have also installed the webcam driver properly because many people don't know about webcam drivers and also forget to install this.
    5. In case you don't have the in build microphone in your webcam, try to make video chat with the help of a audible microphone or headset which can provide you good quality sound.

    Thanks dear friend and enjoy your video calling after doing this.

    HELLO FRIEND,


    This problem might arise due to installation of old version of wedcam drivers which come along with the windows XPk.

    Try deleting previous webcam drivers and then install new web cam drivers software k.

    You download them online k.

    All the best....................
