ChromaCam in new Skype Preview app

Casey Nov 14, 2016 11:55AM CST

Your virtual cam came up in Skype ver 7.29.xx, but not in the new Skype Preview for Window's 10. That cost me about 15 min of wasted time trying to figure it out, when you knew it already. Hmmmm - good entry for your FAQ??

When do you expect to provide integration with Skype Preview for Windows 10?

Thanks so much,

Hi Casey, thanks for the note and the interest in Personify, but sorry for the confusion!

So Skype Preview for Windows 10 is a completely different kind of Skype. It’s basically an evolution of the Skype Windows 10 Metro app, and as such, it doesn’t use direct show, which is the paradigm that apps like ours use to work with Skype.

Other Skype apps, like the standard Skype for Desktop or Skype for Business app, should work just fine with ChromaCam. Unfortunately, there aren’t any near-term plans to support the Preview for Windows 10 version.
