Why does Skype keep freezing on my computer?

xtremelyeuro: Why does Skype keep freezing on my computer?
This is a problem that started recently. Whenever I try to start up skype and make a video call, the video freezes after about a minute. Why is that? I have fast internet (768k, and it did work properly before). How do I fix this problem? It’s really annoying.

This is a huge problem in the latest versions of Skype. It appears to be particularly bad with Logitech and Microsoft cameras. I use a bargain cheapy kind and have no problem but my parents use a Microsoft and their video freezes.

Some folks have suggested reverting to an older version of Skype (say 4.1 or lower) and in Skype turning off the options for automatically updating to a new version.

You can get an old version at
