    Kinect loosing video and audio during Skype calls


    For the last couple of weeks I haven't been able to use my Kinect for Skype calls. The Kinect seems to turn on and off and reports that another program is using the device. I don't think I have anything else running so I'm not sure what is causing this.

    I don't believe it is hardware related as I swapped it out with a 2nd one and the same issues are still happening.

    The light and 3 red dots seem to be there during normal use for the most part.

    As a side note, it's seemed to have intermittent issues recognizing voice requests; volume, play, pause, go to, etc

    Where is Skype for Kinect?

    Well group video calling, is only available with Skype Premium & texts also use Skype Credits etc..

    If it is anything like Skype for HDTV, that already uses a Kinect like camera.. You also pay a Subscription fee for some features, like voice calls too..

    Skype help?

    Actually, that is not correct. Skype on Xbox One does indeed support using the Xbox headset for Skype calls. if the headset is plugged into the controller, audio input and output will be routed through the headset. there is no way to manually control
    if the headset vs. Kinect is used, however.

    skypeon xbox 360

    Skype service was available on 360 for awhile, about half a year to a year ago they took it off. You were even able to make skype calls using the xbox Kinect. The New Kinect will be able to do video chat as well as camera related items. in fact, you can
    pull up Skype directly on the side of your game to video chat while you play. The current kinect had skype, but for reasons unknown to me, they decided to remove that functionality. just wait for the xbox one, it is better in every way to the current generation.
    especially with the kinect.

    How fluid is the transition?

    If I had to guess... the Kinect down the road *NEW* from MS, will be about $249.99.. the PS version will be releasing at $199.99 (I remember seeing it somewhere)... my money well spent the first day I ordered pizza from Skype, paused the movie got the food
    at the door and restarted it.. without even looking for the controller....

    That is another aspect you will loose with a kinect-less XB1.. No skype, no record that, no simple audio commands.. try to look at the kinect for what it really is... a 2nd controller input device rather than something to lay games with

    Kinect keeps turning off/not working

    Didn't help. During the middle of a Skype call the camera froze, other end of the call lost our video and I got the same message saying the camera is being used by another application.
