I am using Skype Beta 4 on my Windows 7 PC. I can use Skype for sending and receiving instant messages but I cannot use it when making video calls. It always stops and gives me an error that it stopped working. When I hit the Close program, the Skype screen will quit. And the icon on my taskbar will also quit. I have to restart my computer to open Skype again. And when I tried to run Video Call, the same process happens. What can I do with it? Help me please. Thanks.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Since you mentioned you have Skype beta 4, try upgrading to the new one. From a quick search, many have mentioned it's the 5.7 version but personally, I'm using 5.5.0.124 . You can get it the latest from this site:

This new version allows you to add your Facebook friends to your contact list and do video call/chat with them. But before you do an upgrade, however, make sure you close Skype completely, not just clicking on the x button on the upper right hand corner. To do that, look for the Skype icon found in your system tray, right click on it and then choose Quit.

Also, remember that these are Beta versions, meaning they will have bugs and issues as they are still in testing form. So whenever you're getting error messages in old Beta versions, it's always a good move to upgrade to a newer Beta version.

Cheers!

That problem happens because you are using a beta version. A beta release of an application is intended for testing and bug discovery. It is very unstable and different sorts of problems should be expected to happen. The program in this stage of development is not stable. If you are not a beta tester, stop using beta programs.

If you want to use Skype free of errors, download the final and stable release like the one from their download page. Uninstall the beta version of Skype from your computer then download and install the latest Skype for Windows. The current version supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10 both 32-bit and 64-bit.

It requires at least 1 GHz or faster processor and 512 kbps up/128 kbps down broadband connection.
