Skype 5.0 for Windows update
We have just released an update for Skype 5.0 for Windows.
With this update we aim to fix issues found in Skype 5.0 following the initial release. We’d like to thank all of you for your feedback.
In the original Skype 5.0 for Windows release the FaceVsion Touchcam N1 and Freetalk Everyman Webcam did not work properly in HD video mode. We have fixed the issue with this update, but the camera owners will need to upgrade their camera firmware too. You can find instructions from the camera manufacturers websites, check here for Freetalk and FaceVsion.
We recommend that everyone upgrades to the latest version of Skype. Start download now.
