Webcam/Skype Problems

Hey guys I got a problem with my webcam and skype. I got skype last night and it worked pretty good. The first time I tried the webcam worked perfectly, except every 15-20 mins the video call would end and we had to recall each other.

However this morning I got on and I get this error:

Skype cant connect to your webcam. And when I video call I get this error: Video source isnt delievering the stream in the correct form. So I tried restarting my computer a few times, and this worked once and the webcam turned on. But now its doing it again. So I tried updating my driver and that didnt work. Anyideas?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a integrated webcam. Windows Vista.

Have you tested it with other video calling/messaging apps - such as Yahoo or Windows Live messenger?

This will at least tell you if the hardware may be an issue or if it is just application specific.

If webcam consistently fails across all applications, your next step should be Dell support forums, or a call to Dell themselves.

Good Luck!
