    Accepted Solution

    Vista: under C:\Users\[your login Windows login name]\AppData\Roaming\Skype\[your Skype login name]

    XP: c:\docuemtns and settings\<user name>\Application Data\Skype\<skype username> directory

    1 - Open config.xml for editing (right click the file and choose edit).

    2 - Find <video> section.I added


    and after adding my <video> section in config.xml looks as follows:

    <Device>Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision</Device>

    *You of course need to replace the device name in the <Device> setting with your own device name. You can see the device information if you run "dxdiag" and then save its output as text file (see above for example).

    3 - Some information I found using Google suggested to also add to the <video> section <Fps>25</Fps>. But that only confused my version of Skype and gave me bad quality video. You can try, but I suggest to not add it.

    9 - Save config.xml file and open Skype again. Try video chat and hopefully enjoy the better resolution!
