Summary: I bought this camera to use skype; but it does not work; I have the same problem as someone above; I can see the other side but they cant see me; at the beggining I thought it was my PC and/or my internet speed but since then I bought a Microsoft camera(£19)and it has proved me wrong it was not my ionternet or my PC as this camera works faultless.
Summary: I bought this webcam to use with Skype 5 under Windows 7 - which shouldn't have been a problem. It didn't install correctly so I had to download and install the, supposedly "optional", software. It took several minutes to produce a picture locally when I opened Skype, but got there eventually, so I Skyped my partner. The picture disappeared immediately, although the camera light still said it was working correctly. I could see him but he couldn't see me.
