Problems with using Mic/Camera (web.skype.com)

4 posts in this topic

Updated to 5.3.8.2000 the other day.
Now I can't use voice/video chat on web.skype.com ("no access" to microphone or camera).
Note that I have also allowed/approved both camera and microphone on the website itself (the action they show in the image) - these icons do not actually appear on the browser itself.

They are both allowed on this site (with allowed exceptions in settings>Privacy & Content>content>) and this worked in last stable version (didn't check latest betas)

The names of the devices is also strange (full device name, not the usual shown name).
I believe that is the likely reason.

Note that this is a specific problem though - it works on Facebook audio/video chat.

Hi there, this issue has been reported to the dev team again. The dev team has fixed this issue several times but the Skype for web updated so much, it seems the Skype for web doesn't hope the users to use it in the XP system...

Do notice:
Everything worked great in v5.2.7.5000 - the problem only occurred when I updated to v.5.3.8.2000 - so it is clearly not Skype's fault.
