There are two additional ways to communicate with your contacts on Skype. The first is screen sharing, a feature that lets you share live video of what’s on your computer screen, such as a website or the software you’re using.
Skype has a dedicated sound test tool via which you can check to see whether both your microphone and speakers are working as they should. The tool works by having you call an automated computer service that then has you perform a speaking and listening test.
Sometimes when you experience poor video quality on Skype, your webcam is the culprit. Standard-definition webcams only record 480-pixel high vertical lines of resolution, which simply does not look as good as high-definition webcams that broadcast in 720- or 1080-pixel resolutions. Bad lighting makes for bad video as well, so turn on the lights, open your blinds and avoid backlighting, which casts your face in shadow. For best results, keep your light sources facing you from behind your webcam.
