Do you see a black square in the bottom right corner? This happens to me, but the person I'm calling can still see me. Go to Options and check if the webcam is working. – functionptr Dec 30 '12 at 17:52
@function, no it doesn't work. There is black window in Options window, in Video Options section. – Ziyaddin Sadigov Dec 30 '12 at 18:52
