    My Skype crashes right after I start a video call. It just freezes and crashes.
    Then, after I restart Skype, the video call is working fine. It only crashes the first, initial time after starting the video call.

    I have tried it with several accounts and it does the same on all accounts. As long as it is the first time after rebooting. After that it works fine.
    There is a video for ~3 seconds and then it freezes. I do not believe it is the web-camera driver, because it did the same w/o even the camera driver being installed.

    I have version (windows 8.1 ENT, Hp Probook 4530s). Two versions before it did not crash at all when initially starting a video call.

    Any fixes?
    Thank you
