    Hi folks I have this strange video calls behavior during skype calls.I decided to add this in general software,cos Im suspecting its a software issue..
    My problem is fallowing:
    when I start a video call with someone,this is what I see:
    [​IMG]

    Strangely,they see me perfectly on the other side and I also see myself perfectly in the little window that shows your own video.the image I've inserted is taken from my video options as you can see,but the callers video is deformed the same way as you can see in the screenshot.
    I've tried everything I possibly could to try to fix this problem,but so far no luck.drivers up to date,skype up to date.this started to happen all of sudden so I've tried to reinstall the skype to the version with which it worked last time,but no luck.any idea guys?

    EDIT:as you can see that even the screenie is from my own video options as I've mentioned,its clear from it that the second stripe from the botton is from the callers video,precisely its my mom :) so its something with skype perhaps?cos the videos get mixed up like this in my video option,where I should see only myself..

    I can only say: me too.

    And video conferencing with Live Messenger is perfect at the same time.

    Should we email on skype customer services (if there is any) and let them know about this?or you think they are aware of this and working on a fix?well as I've mentioned I allready had 4 updates and still no fix..
