Not long ago, a friend asked me to assist on installing webcam on his new laptop and make it work with Skype.
In a few minutes, I had the hardware and driver installed properly, made the webcam working in software that came with the webcam, but failed to see the webcam listed in Skype options > Video > Select webcam. I thought getting the latest version would help. It didn't.
I found quite a number of people having the same problem when I was searching for solution. Hope this post would work for the people out there.
