    Hey guys, so here's the thing... My webcam doesn't really work when I use ooVoo or Skype... for example, I have just downloaded ooVoo and I was told to check my webcam availability and all that, so when I tested my webcam, it didn't work. I viewed the "devices and printers" section, and clicked on my webcam icon and looked at its properties and checked its device status and it said "This device is working properly". I thought the problem was ooVoo but then I used Skype and Facebook webcam and still my webcam didn't work. I'm a total noob, so I hope you guys can help me out here. I'm using Windows 7.

    And sorry for my English, it's not my first language. Thanks in advance.

    Try re-installing the Windows 7 webcam driver from your laptop manufacturer's website.
