Asked by alice bushe on 2010-12-07

I have installed "plug and play" webcam logitech c270.
Audio works fine.
Video does not work.
I can see and hear when people call me
People can hear me but not see me.
On the Skype/Options/Video the "test" button for video results in blank white screen.

Can you help me?
