    Skype for Business' access to camera


    Hi,

    I have a new Huawei Matebook D14 with Windows 10 operating system. I have installed the Office-package and Skype for Business. In Windows' camera settings I can not activate the camera for Skype for Business, because Skype for Business is not listed as an alternative as an application to activate/deactivate. When I go to Skype for Business internal settings I get a message that says

    "We can not find a camera: If you already have one, open device management in Windows to control that it is installed and working" (my own translation from Norwegian to English).

    I have tried those basic tips and tricks. I have also tried to repair and reinstall Skype for Business.

    The basic Skype-version is also installed and is listed in the list of applications that can have the camera acitvated/deactivated. The camera works with the basic Skype-version itself.

    The problem seems to be that I do not have Skype for Business as an option inside Windows' settings for activating/deactivating the camera. Does anybody have a solution?

    :)

    Skype for business stuck at splash screen on startup


    Just a suggestion... Do you have Microsoft Office installed? If you do Skype for Business is listed under your Microsoft Office folder in your start folder/ All apps. (that's where mine is listed) Right click on it, then choose Uninstall .

    You Can install the regular Skype even if Skype for Business is installed.....I have both installed.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    To change the camera in Skype application from built in to USB follow the steps mentioned below.



    1. Open Skype application by searching it on the search bar on taskbar.
    2. Now click ellipses next to your name on the top left corner.
    3. Now click on Settings and select
      Audio and Video settings.
    4. Under Camera select the
      USB camera from the drop down list.


    If you are using Skype for Business then you can refer the article

    Camera not working in Skype for Business Web App

    Microsoft, this is a quite common failure scenario with the Skype for business Web App.

    Has a solution (other than disable cameras) been released yet, if not when? I see it happen on lots of other machines, not just surface devices.

    The troubleshooting steps available on msft's webpages are not helpful.
