Maybe you have an idea, why Skype does not handle my camera.
- Laptop: HP Elite Book 8770w
- OS: W10 upgradet from W7 before half a year or more (no major nor minor problems with that)
- W10 On Board Camera App does work.
- Skype is added/enabled in Settings->Privacy
... but when testing the camera in Skype it always shows me a black pictrure.
Do you have any idea where I'm wrong?
Note 1: I don't think it is an 'ugly face detection' by skype, it does also not work in case I put a neutral grey paper in front of the camera
Note 2: I'm not willing to reinstall skype because I don't remember my skype credentials
Thanks for hints in advance.
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
You could try typing "camera" into the Win10 search; for me, first option is "choose which apps can access your camera" giving application-level access. Secondly if you've accessed the camera via the Camera app, maybe it's not relinquished it properly? Use TaskManager to make sure it's fully closed; if it is and still doesn't work, you could try a reboot I guess...
Is the camera red light coming on when you access it from Skype?
Lastly, do you have other cameras defined on the system? Maybe it's trying t talk to one that doesn't exist. In Skype, go to Settings, then Audio&Video; in my version of Skype there's a dropdown at top-right of the dialog to switch between cameras. That dialog also shows a preview from the cam.
Just stumbled on this one.

I purchased several of these bundles over the years. All the books on offer are PDF in this bundle. Just out of curiosity once, I purchased a Survivalist/Prepper bundle. Might come in handy these days.
