    Web cam using Skype give bad picture


    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but here it is.

    Whenever I try and use my web cam to chat with someone on Skype the picture I see is messed up.

    Please tell me how to fix it?

    Thanks so much for your help. This has been driving me crazy.

    I have attached a pic of my problem.

    It's just likely that either you or the person you're talking to has a low bandwidth connection. Does the audio break up when the video is like that?

    Thanks for replying but I don't think that is the problem. I check the bandwidth using Skype and it says my system is medium strength which should be okay for video. And no, the sound is fine and the person I am talking too can see me fine so it is only on my end that the video is not working correctly.
