Skype - Multiple problems with installation/usage

  • Firstly, i have windows 10 which may be causing some of the problems.

     

    Installing skype:

    It straight up is impossible to use the standard installer, as it says it cannot connect to the download server (no there are no firewalls blocking it unless it is going through some secret unknown tunnel that i cant do anything about). I have used multiple .msi installers and skypesetupfull installers, and they seem to work, however checking for updates is impossible as it says download of the skype update failed.

     

    Usage:

    anything that is in a group is impossible, nothing shows up that i am currently in a group, and any new groups i create are never shown to anyone that i add, and i cannot call them or send messages(always says message not delivered). If others add me to different groups it wont show up on the skype on my PC but will show up just fine on my phone. This is horribly frustrating , and i have no idea other than there is another port that skype uses that has been blocked for some reason.

     

    Hope someone can help

  • Skype - Skype for Linux has become 100% unusable/Multiple problems with Skype for Linux

    Certain contacts which are online in Skype for Windows/Skype for web are offline in Skype for Linux.Messages to offline contacts cannot be sent. I see a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. Oftentimes those messages are never delivered.Messages sent to me while I was offline are not delivered even though I'm online now (right freaking now I can see them in Skype for Web, but Skype for Linux does not show/deliver them).My contacts see me as "Away" even though right now my status is Online. Reconnecting does not help. Logging off and on doesn't help. Recreating a profile doesn't help.These three problems are deal breakers. These are very basic functions which must work or I will lose my work. I really don't know what to do. I will now try to install Skype under Wine but I don't hold my breath.

  • Skype - Audio Problems with Skype

    I have a problem: no one can hear me through Skype. Skype thinks that my microphone is fine, but when I talk, no green bar shows up indicating how loud I'm talking like it does for volume. I did a test recording on Audacity, and Audacity can record my voice just fine. Someone help!

  • Skype - having problems with set options command in skype.

    Hi, i run a gaming community, i have a group that is pretty fairly large. and im trying to use the command /set options +JOINERS_BECOME_LISTENERS and it just isnt working.im not sure if i dont fully understand how to use it orr if its broken.what im trying to do is create a chat for the group where only i can post things. so if there is an event coming up everyone can see it without having to send everyone a personal message one at a time, because the chat gets covered in people talking to eachother. and there arent really alot of group chat applications that can do what i need.  if you could. give me a rundown on current working commands. how to see and use every command. or send me a link to a page that shows every command in rich detail as to what it does and the syntax it uses. because i cant find much on the matter.Thank you!  

  • Skype - Multiple problems (unable to see group discussions etc)

    For a while now, well, multiple versions, I've been having issues with Skype working correctly.When I see group discussions, it says "Untitled discussion" with 0 participants, yet sometimes we are able to talk through that even if it says that for me. Other times if the group already exists I am unable to join with voice, I have to be already in call with the person that hosts the group discussion for it to work. Message also seem to take up to 30 minutes to send (normal text chat).  I also can't see pictures that people send me over skype... I have to go to the web version on my email to be able to see pictures. I have tried multiple solutions already to try to fix the issue, but nothing worked. I tried updating, but was already at the latest version. I have tried a reinstall. I have tried going back to a few older versions, but the issues stay. I tried uninstalling - removing the temp files- reinstalling, but it didn't work. Currently uninstalling again and instal

  • EA - Multiple problems with this game.

    First off i wanna say i am a big fan of NFS, always have been. When i first saw this I immediately thought this was a underground reboot. Sadly this isn't that, but its still cool. I am having 2 problems with this game, hopefully someone can help me out. My first problem is acceleration. My car takes forever to speed up and even when it does it doesn't go over 90MPH. I tried out a brand new controller plus a new game and i still couldn't win the first few races. Looking in the settings, i see no sensitivity settings or controller customizatipn at all.  Second problem is drifting. I cant even do a donut. I tried driving in to one and just starting one, neither choice works. I go the setting for control and its either too much or too little. I dont want to have to constantly change the settings on my car or my car entirely to just do an event. If anyone can help me out on either front it would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Skype - Multiple issues with Skype: Please help!

    Hello, so last night I tried Skyping someone and it would not let me use my webcam, I came to learn that its saying that another application is using it (Still haven't found out what is using it) But I tried deleting skype and re-installing since Skype is the only thing I personally downloaded that has access to my webcam. Its saying it can't be found, and is unable to uninstall it. It said to look for a file called Skype.msi and nada. 

  • Skype - Skype to Skype Audio problems with iPad 2 and Skype 6.11

    I have seen many posts lamenting audio problems with Skype on iPhone/iPad calling to landlines. However, I'm experiencing audio problems Skype to Skype under update 6.11.0.130. Lack of sound, both speaking and ringing in or out are a problem: when I skype call out, the other party does not hear the ring; if they pick up, they cannot hear me speak, or I cannnot hear them speak.  If the other party calls me they hear the ring on their end for a substantial time before I begin to hear the ring on my end.  Calls that connect drop almost immediately. Skype on Windows 7 PC is fine, it's just my iPad 2, OS 9.2.1 that is experiencing the issue.  Very sad, as audio on the iPad was previously far superior to the laptop. Also, never had problems having skype running simultaneously on the laptop and the iPad, but that now seems to cause some conflict as well. Since both my OS and Skype versions (laptop and iPad) are the newest, I'm hoping for a solution for skype
