    Hi all. I recently installed Skype on Win 8 and my video shows a black screen (internal webcam used). However in Win 7 my Skype video shows whole environment clearly (no black screen). I am really puzzled Help would be much appreciated.

    Hi,

    have you checked under the options tab of the skype app? You might need to configure a setting or settings?

    I installed the latest Windows 8 desktop version of Skype and it fixed the problem :D!!! No more black screen. The normal Skype looks like it has a few bugs with Windows 8. Thanks anyways
