You can still use the text chat and messaging features on Skype if you don't have a webcam.Another way to display a Skype chat on a Vizio television is to hook up a computer to the appropriate port on the Vizio so that the screen of the computer displays on the Vizio.You can troubleshoot cross-program use by closing all other programs that could be using the webcam and restarting Skype; restart the Mac if that doesn't work.
The webcam is Skype-certified and includes a white LED indicator to let you know when the camera is turned on.
All Vizio Internet App televisions sold in retail stores as of August 2013, and some older models, can support an external webcam, which Vizio calls a TV Video Camera.
The TV Video Camera by Vizio includes four built-in microphones and should be mounted on top of the television for the best picture and audio quality.
To help the camera pick up your voice, sit directly in front of the microphone and three to 12 feet from the camera.
Televisions that support the Vizio webcam can display Skype video at up to 720p format.
You can check to see whether a model is compatible with Skype and the webcam at Vizio's compatibility checker (link in Resources).
