    Kinect for Skype - Camera no longer working?

    Hello, I have an Xbox One X with the Kinect on the adapter. When I am in Skype, I can see my Kinect camera is working fine. However as soon as I make a call, the image (via the preview window in the corner) freezes and whoever I am calling cannot see me
    - only hear me. Since the microphone and camera are both the Kinect, it's obvious that the Kinect is indeed connecting to Skype, but the video keeps cutting out as soon as the other person answers the call. The settings all seem to be in order with regards
    to allowing Skype to access the camera, privacy, etc. so I am a loss here. I know using the Kinect is rare in itself, let alone using it for Skype, but I really hope someone can help me as this is how my son and I are able to communicate with our family on
    the east coast (we are in California).

    Skype Difficulties between Panasonic Viera BRDVD player & Xbox One

    Hi,

    I've been experiencing really terrible pixelation and freezing when I call a user on skype who is using the Panasonic Viera Skype app.

    I've placed both my xbox one and the remote user's skype dvd player in the DMZ on both networks.

    I've verified calling Viera-Skype to Viera-Skype shows no pixelation or freezing.

    BUT, when I call from xbox->viera in either direction - horrendous freezing and pixelation; audio is fine.

    Is there some sort of incompatibility between clients?

    Is xbox expecting a resolution the panasonic player/remote camera can't provide?

    Running out of ideas here but happy to further troubleshoot if someone can help me / provide details.

    Thanks!

    -Chris

    Kinect 2.0

    It can't be used as a camera? What's Skype then?

    Xbox One Kinect

    You can use it as a camera for Skype or as a camera to record videos or to film your self doing game reviews on the DVR.

    what are some people even doing on the internet

    I've been using my Wii U GamePad for the internet browser and the camera's always activated but I honestly don't care if anyone's watching.

    -

    I do intend on using it for Skype camera chat if the software comes to it.

    Get Rid of Kinect (Read)

    I think project spark will use kinect.....also, kinect works great with skype, allows me to ditch my old PC camera for a much better setup.
