Ever since I upgraded my MacBook Pro from Leopard to Snow Leopard I have always had problems with Skype.

When I start a video chat, Skype tells me that my camera is not installed on the machine (even though it clearly is). After searching the internet I have found some 'solutions' but none of them work. After trying them, it makes my camera feed appear as a blank, green image.

How can I get Skype to function with the built in iSight with Snow Leopard properly?

is there any body else face this problem?

Yes I have the last version. – Am1rr3zA Dec 1 '09 at 18:23
Does the camera work in other iSight-aware apps, like 'Photo Booth' or 'iChat'? – Peter McMahan Dec 3 '09 at 2:39
yes it's work there. – Am1rr3zA Dec 3 '09 at 11:03
