Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

Share tech news, updates, or what's on your mind.

We are setting up Skype for Business 2015.
In the boardroom I have setup a Laptop with Windows 10 Pro and Skype for Business to be used for Video Conferencing. I have attached a Logitech BCC950 Conference Cam to the laptop. When looking at the Preview in Video settings, you can get a stream from the camera. Once you connect a video call you get the message "Could not start Video: Your camera is not setup or you are already using it."
There are no other applications that could be using the Camera.

I have tried the following:
  1. Updated the driver to the latest that Windows updates can find as Logitech does not supply updates on their website.
  2. Installed all Windows updates.
  3. Changed USB ports. These are only USB 2.0 ports.
  4. Tried a different computer with the same setup but have the same issues.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

If you go into a report in Microsoft Call Quality Dashboard - you can see how many good
or poor calls there were in a day. (See the inline image.)  But say you see that on a particular
day there were six bad calls. How can you go about finding who made those calls, from where,
at what time etc etc? Thank you.

Can Skype for Business client tag Class of Service bits for use by network switches
and routers so that those markings can then be use for QoS? We are using Skype
for Business 2015 on Windows 7. I'm not certain what we're using on Mac and
Windows 10.

Or is it normally the case that the network devices mark and classify the traffic
rather than the application/Windows/PC?

In the Microsoft Call Quality reports - there is an option to view call quality
for Mobile LTE calls. How does MS Skype know that the calls are going over
Mobile LTE? Is the Skype mobile client running on a cell phone and transported
over TCP/IP over the carrier's LTE network? Or are  cell phone calls into
a Skype conference bridge but not over IP? I'm not sure what these calls are.
Their call quality percentage is by far the worst of any other classification of calls
and could contribute to the perception of Skype not being so hot.

We are using Skype for Business Online - Office 365. Thanks.

What services can be restarted in Windows 7 if audio fails when joining a WebEx
conference? My system audio for mic and speakers tend to work fine for Zoom meeting
and Skype. WebEx has had problems and I have to have it call my cell phone instead of
just using the headphones on the laptop.

Hi there,

I have configured a Windows 10 workstation with Office 2016.  The installation of Office included Skype for Business, but that's not the client application we want to use.  We want to use Lync 2010.  I went into Programs and Features and removed Skype for Business by removing the feature from Office 2016.  The problem we are having now is that even though I installed Lync, this link, callto:sip:81625871@vc.domain.com, still wants to open Skype, not Lync.  But if we connect to a link like this, https://meet.domain.com/username/9QB86KLZ, it opens in Lync just fine.  How can we get the callto:sip to always open with Lync?  I thought I found it correctly in the registry and it does say "communicator.exe", which is Lync, but it's not working.  Please help!  We have a lot of employees that use this workstation (boardroom) and I need to get Lync working properly.

Thanks,
- Christian

We have a client who is using Skype (not Skype for Business) and is in a couple groups chats.  On a daily basis, there are messages that are received in Skype on their phone, but the messages do not show in Skype on their computer.  Some of the messages that are received on their phone do appear in Skype on the computer, but not all of them.  Is there any way to synchronize the messages between Skype on their phone and their computer so that all messages show on both.

Hi SFB Experts

as i understand from this link that in order to install SFB enterprise you have to have three front end servers in the pool

and in order to install SFB standard edition you have to use the built in MSSQL express inside SFB media

so what if i want to install only one front end server and use external MSSQL 2014 standard edition so technically this possible and such setup called standard or enterprise

i know front end server license is the same for stranded and enterprise only CALS play roll here but i want to know my setup is doable and under which category standard or enterprise
