Running 10.6.7 on a 10v. Problem existed on 10.6.5 as well.
I've been able to use Skype for video calls once. Every time I've tried since it crashes whenever it attempts to access the webcam. I have verified that the webcam isn't the issue as I've been able to use it for Google video chatting and Photobooth. Only Skype behaves like this.
I've downgraded from the latest version to 5.0.x version with the same outcome. If I click the the video call button it crashes. If I go to Preferences and select Audio/Video it crashes.
Has anyone else experienced this? I can't figure it out to save my life. Like I said, It worked once but hasn't since.
