One the of Mac's hallmarks is its reputation for hardware reliability, so when you're trying to make Skype calls and your webcam doesn't want to take part, you might be taken off guard. The problem could be as simple as another program refusing to relinquish control of the webcam or as severe as an operating system incompatibility. Many third-party webcams are designed for Windows systems with Mac OS X as an afterthought.
Programs do not like to cooperate with each other when more than one is trying to use the webcam at a given time. If the webcam was working in another program earlier and now won't run in Skype, it may be because the other program is still using the webcam. You can troubleshoot cross-program use by closing all other programs that could be using the webcam and restarting Skype; restart the Mac if that doesn't work.
Updating the Skype program to the latest version for all callers may resolve compatibility problems with the webcam. If you or the person you are trying to call is using Skype version 2.8 or earlier and the other person is using version 6.2 or later, you will not be able to use video. Skype version 6.2 discontinues compatibility with version 2.8 and earlier. While Skype may work with older versions, Skype lists using the latest version as a requirement for video calling. Additionally, updating Skype can also resolve rarely occurring issues with a bad or corrupted program installation.
According to Skype, most Mac-compatible webcams work with Skype, but some older models may have problems. Skype recommends using a Skype certified webcam to guarantee compatibility. Unless the webcam is Universal Video Class compliant, it is not guaranteed to work on Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later systems with Apple's generic webcam software. Additionally, the webcam may have limited functionality when running on UVC instead of a proprietary driver.
With the move to Skype for Business telephone lines, faculty and staff need to become familiar with using software to make and receive telephone calls. The use of computer speakers, microphone and software for telephone service is often referred to as a softphone.
Many businesses require you to have some form of reliable communications for meetings and individual discussions outside the workplace. Skype is one of the most used methods of communication amongst businesses, making you capable of quick and easy messaging, and recording meetings held with up to 250 people.
Like @djgaggi, I am also experiencing the same issue with both outgoing and incoming video calls on Skype for Business. Also using Workspace version 2010 (latest 126.96.36.199). I have tried my FaceTime camera and a standalone Logitech C270 (USB 2.0 connected via the Apple USB-C to USB Adapter).
Not until the Enterprise Voice is enabled will you be able to make regular calls from within the desktop application.

Skype for Business uses a number of extensions to the SIP/SIMPLE instant-messaging protocol for some features. As with most instant-messaging platforms, non-Microsoft instant-messaging clients that have not implemented these publicly available extensions may not work correctly or have complete functionality. Skype for Business supports federated presence and IM to other popular instant message services such as AOL, Yahoo, MSN, and any service using the XMPP protocol, although support for XMPP has been deprecated in Skype for Business 2019. Text instant-messaging in a web browser is available via Skype for Business integration within Exchange Outlook Web App.
On stage, DocuSign was demoed to show how users can pick files directly from their OneDrive account, search for signatories from their contacts and colleagues by expertise or phonetic name matches, and be notified when a colleague they are emailing a document to is out of the office. Zapier, meanwhile, was shown off using the Excel REST API to interact with a file sitting in OneDrive for Business and add data to an Excel spreadsheet.
Skype for Business is a corporate communications tool that's been used by enterprises and corporations for internal messaging, conferencing, desktop sharing and voice calling usually within the organisation. Skype for business is being retired soon, and all the communication functionality is being moved to Microsoft Teams.
The product development has been driven by customer demand. We have seen a gap where companies are using SFB and also doubling up with another system to look after their communications. We saw this, and our solution addresses this problem by allowing customers to unify SFB with their phone system to give rich unified communication experience all managed from within the IP Telecom Cloud PBX interface.
Any company currently using Office 365 with Skype for Business or any company which is currently thinking about deploying it. If you give our sales team a call, then we can discuss how best to implement it for your organisation.
Other customers are using SFB internationally across multiple countries, and they use the IP Telecom HostedPBX to manage call routing, IVRs, Time of Day based routing and all the other features of a high-end phone system to route calls to their Skype for business users. 1e1e36bf2d
