Skype to Non Skype (No Quality)

Q: Skype to Non Skype (No Quality)

I have been using Skype paid calls for business usage and have huge problems with the Other side not hearing me well or at all. It used to work OK but now I have to restart hub or reconnect or just wait . This is for calls to International. If I call skype to skype it is OK most of time. My provider BT has checked all hub settings and network seems fine. I am about to give up on skype to non skype as a business option and the fact I am spending good money and cant get instant support really doesnt help. I am out of ideas
Using Vista with Broadband wireless hub and have good connection with other devices.

Preferred Solution: Skype to Non Skype (No Quality)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've noticed this recently. I've tried posting in the Skype community with no luck.

My computer is as follows:
E6750 OC'd to 2.933
4 GB RAM PC-6400
eVGA GTX 460 SE 1GB

Basically, I use the "Nightly" browser from Firefox, which is a 64-bit version of Firefox. With Resource Monitor, I'm noticing that I'm consistently hitting over the 3.3 GB RAM (can't remember if the mark is 3.3, 3.2 or 3.1) mark for 32-bits. I usually have a lot of applications simultaneously running on my computer. Then, when I run Skype, I notice that my video call quality is pretty bad. Even closing "Nightly" doesn't really help too much. Resource Monitor still says that the memory that was used is still not 'free' but rather in 'standby'. Does this make any difference?

Why is this? Is it because Skype is a 32-bit application and cannot access memory within the first 3.3 GB? Forgive me, I'm a 'noob'' here. Are there any 'tweaks' I can do to my computer to fix this problem?

A:Skype video quality

Has this always been the case?

When you say "video call," do you mean both the audio and video quality? The components you've touched on are probably all fine, working as they should and doing their best for your programs to be top notch fast and capable. These components, however, can only do so much-- the main things you should look at are your speakers/audio card, microphone, and webcam.

Hi,

I have just set up skype yesterday.

I connected with a friend with skype to skype. I have an old Logitech Quickcam pro 4000 and she has a new Lifecam HD 5000. The problem is, she says she can see me clearly with good quality but the video I am seeing of her is verry blurry.
I have another friend who I connected to as well and I can see the video of them is much bigger and clearer than the other friends one.

I want to know what exactly is the problem of why I can't see friend 1's video clearly? Her video cam is clearly better than mine so I wouldn't think its the webcam's problem. The only thing I can think of is maybe her upload speed is slower than mine? But even if it's slower, I should still get good image quality just a lot less FPS right?

Hope i make sense....

Hello,

I am having some problems while viewing video over the internet and also when using SKYPE (a particularly frustrating problem since we are living overseas).

I originally suspected some sort of spyware / malware and posted this request to the relevant section of the forum (my first reply is more descriptive than the original post). However, a reply from Ried (who reviewed my Hijackthis log) has my system being clean. Ried suggested I try this section of the forum.

This problem has not always been there - the PC worked fine for a year or two before things started to slow.

Grateful for any help.

Dear
 
I noticed that skype has send to all skype contacts a certain link, to one contact even multiply links.
 
this all happens on the same day: 17th december from 14:30 -14:39.
 
I haven't seen any spam send anymore after that.
 
Skype support told me to reset my password, I did, and to download safety scanner from microsoft. they proviced me with the link.
 
when I try to open the link, the browser cannot load the page, it is stuck in a loop:  sometimes I see a page, but just for a second or even less, then mostly white page, and browser keeps trying to load the page. and in chrome : a  little shield symbol on the right side of the address bar says that it's trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources. this message dissappears very quickly.
 
 
I have skype installed on two laptops, and on my smartphone (iphone).
 
The problem I told about, is on one laptop that has no antivirus. I did not yet checked the other laptop, if the microsoft page opens or not. but I do have bitdefender internet security (paid) installed on the second laptop.
 
I want to be sure the laptop that has the problem, is virusfree.

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
 
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
 
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
 
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
 
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
 
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
 
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
 
This is really not clear anymore.

Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality (fixed)

Hi All,

I am having a few problems with webcam calls with my folks.

I have installed the latest versions of Skype and Windows Live Messenger on both machines but when using either one for webcam video calls their audio and video coming to me is absolutely fine and so is my video to them however my audio to them is delayed, juddery, and robotic/gravelly (as if i have a sore throat). It is the same in both programs.

Zone Alarm on both machines is configured to allow these programs to run as they wish but still the problem persists.

We both have broadband at speeds usually no lower than 3mb.

Any help apreciated.
Rob
 

A:Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality

skype is heavily dependant on bandwidth. I use it here in Iraq and with phone calls can be garbled if bandwidth is insufficient. However, it would seem in your case, the problem may be firewall related. I would ensure that all your ports are open for skype. I don't recommend zonealarm as it interferes with many programs.

I have a Blue Yeti Microphone, and it's quality only shows through within recording programs such as Audacity. How come my microphone quality is not the same standard when I talk on Skype, Discord and TeamSpeak? I have the settings modified for these programs so that it is at optimal settings, but the general quality of the microphone isn't heard. Although there is a difference between the quality of the Blue Yeti and my previous microphones, it sounds completely different from recording programs AND how it should sound as a high end microphone.
 

A:Sound Quality On Skype/Discord (Voice chat systems)

Quality relies on the amount of data throughput. Most chat programs place a priority on speed (ie: low latency) as opposed to quality, so the amount of data used for the audio stream are reduced.

As you noted, the quality of the mic is noticeable over your previous mic. So the mic quality isn't wasted.

I've experienced some problems and discomfort with skype for win8:
- not able to show screen,
- terrible design,
- very slow response (i.e. when I click RMB, the menu shows up in several seconds, and I expect to see it immideately),
- doesn't understand links to skype chat like skype:?chat&blob=blahblahblah, when I click it nothing happens.

I've also tried skype for desktop, it was even worse:
- when I changed online status to invisible (i've also tried with N/A), skype stopped to receive and send messages,
- when this or another error occurs, I try to kill skype process via task manager, TM then firstly says that skype is not responding (so i am trying to kill process), after that TM stops responding as well.
So when i've tried skype for desktop i had to reboot my laptop about 5 times in a day.

Now I've installed skype from Store back, but I still need to go to skype chat.

Could anyone please help me either make skype 5.x/6.x work on win8, or enter the chat which i need?

Here's my system: http://i.imgur.com/Fu65f57.png

I have always used Skype for Desktop and only recently found that there is a Skype Modern App on my system.
From what I have read it would seem the best plan would be to ditch the App and just continue with the desktop version.
Have there been any recent changes that would make the the Modern App a better solution than the Desktop version?

A:Skype for Desktop vs Skype Modern App

They have updated it recently so it doesn't continue to ring even when you have answered the desktop version which is why I uninstalled it in the first place. This means in theory you could install both and answer whichever you felt like at the time.

I prefer the look of the desktop version personally so I never re-installed the Modern App version.

Q: Skype

Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me out.

I installed Skype from the Microsoft Store, went through the installation process, and then it brought me to the Skype home screen (where you can see your contacts, ect.) However, as soon as it gets to that screen and makes the Skype start up noise, it brings me back to the Windows Home Screen. It shows the app is running in the left side bar (if you put the mouse in the upper left corner of the screen and view all running programs) but when I click on it, it just opens for a quick second and then closes back out.

Anyone else run into this problem?

Can someone help? Thanks.
 

A:Skype

You can use two different accounts to sign into Skype. You can use a "Skype Account that is for for Skype only, or you can use a Microsoft Account such as an Outlook.com, Live.com, Hotmail.com, etc account. You can use either account type based on what you have, the reason for the two accounts is because Microsoft bought Skype years ago and migrated their Messenger users over to it so they allow both account types.

If you have a Live.com account you should be able to use that with the Microsoft Account option, If you have a Skype account then you need to use the Skype account option.

You can also link your Skype account to a Microsoft account if you want: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12060/how-do-i-link-my-skype-and-microsoft-accounts

This is the third thread you've started describing problems with a computer you haven't used in a while.

Computers don't deteriorate on a shelf in just a couple of months unless the hardware is exposed to harsh conditions. Did that happen? More likely, someone used the computer while you were gone. If that's the case, I suspect you'll be chasing down an untold number of problems for quite some time.

My issue is...
 
When i turned on my laptop it loaded accept Skype it told me there was bad sectors within the program, so i proceeded to uninstall it and re-install it, then that's where things got worse.
 
After unstalling it, i tried to instal it i got a 1603 error so after doing some research i then started to get rid of everything to do with skype, i got stuck on this one issue, when i went on to this part "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone" the skype.exe could not be deleted because of this message.
 
"The action can't be completed because the file is open in Base Filtering Engine.
Close this file and try again."
 
I have tried everything to get rid of it or at least stop the service, to no avail, i even tried to delete it through the command prompt and i got the same results. As a last resort i downloaded the Mocrosoft Fix It program i saw that skype was not listed so i went to others and it asked me for a product code which i cannot find, so i am stuck with this part.
 
Then i thought i would just install over it i just get the same message of the 1603 error.
 
So i need a solution to this, as i am out of ideas, I would like very much to use skype again but unitl further notice I am without it.
