Trying to skype with the girfriend. She has a mac and I have a pc, which I think is the root of the problem (the mac bah dum tss). Anyway, we both have the latest versions but it keeps inexplicably dropping the video call. It worked when she did it from a pc (but she didn't have a cam for it, so no video). Both of us have strong internet connections. Has anyone encountered such a problem? The skype website was so unhelpful so I came here.

I just want to see her cans... Can anyone help?

Actually, the problem is that you have a pc.
I actually do have schizophrenia, so stop making fun of people who have it.

I love how the thread immediately starts on how it's the operating system causing it.


Because that has everything to do with it. I would look into making sure it's not either of your networks to begin with.

There's also a possibly be because Skype was just bought out by microsoft, and they may be applying some changes to the servers or something. But make sure your network's all good before you start blaming anyone.

eh the mac thing was joke. it might be the network, my dad thought it would be cool to make it supersecure, so that was the other possibility.

EDIT> although when my sister was in Spain we skyped with her with little issue/

Try ooVoo. I've never had much luck with Skype, but ooVoo works well.

it would seem your skype has a case of the butterfingers.

Skype is pretty unreliable lately, we've been having a lot of failed calls too. I wish I knew what was wrong. The only thing it really could be is something with the internet, which doesn't surprise me as internet here is retarded.
