    Toshiba integrated webcam - camera app error and skype says in use

    Good morning all,

    My spare laptop, a Toshiba Satellite C55-A5285 , which is on the latest build of WI win 10.

    I had finally decided to try out skype, because of the people integration, and setup my wife and daughter on this system, it was actually beneficial as now she has her own skype account.

    In any case, I had not tried video on this unit. Trying skype tells me that the webcam is in use by another program.

    Trying the camera app, or trying skype to test video results in an error 0xA00F4271 (0x80004005) with the webam led on and will repeat until i use TM to kill it.

    I looked at drivers, and other threads online but cant get a handle on this one, all windows and app updates have been done (skype updated this am)

    Bios is up to date as well for the model.

    I downloaded a simple webcam viewer called mycam, and it has no issues opening the camera and displaying video.

    So ... it is time to turn to you fellow windows groupies here :)

    Thanks ahead of time for any assistance given.
