When I make a Skype call the person I am talking to can see me but I can’t see myself in the picture-in-picture view. Why not?
Lea, have you checked that the correct camera is selected in Skype? On Skype on a PC, choose Tools=>Options, click Video Settings in the "General" section and, if necessary, click Webcam settings). If you can't get it to work there either, it's probably a problem with the webcam or its driver.
I fixed this issue for a colleague two weeks ago (Win7). His problem, though he didn't know it, was that his camera was not properly installed. I removed the camera from Computer - Device Manager then ran install new hardware. The camera was picked up automatically and Skype worked perfectly then.
