A major annoying problem as occured since i updated to windows 8.1 my web cam no longer works in skype, it works for everything elese youcam etc just not skpye, audio is working fine too. When i go into settings the programmes freezes and eventually crashes, I can see my webcam listed in skype but thats it, the bottom half of the pane is missing too it cuts out in the middle of clear history, rolled back the driver and it works but messes everything else up. Please help i am ripping my hair out..... thank you

It appears that you want to be running Skype 2.2 for Windows 8.1 OS - the Skype Windows Store may need a patch, as well:

thanks for your reply, unfortunatly all them updates listed are already installed on my laptop, i have uninstalled and reinstalled skype but now there is no devices listed under the options section, like i said ealrier though you cam still works so it must be a problem with Skype, any other ideas?
