    I own an early 2009 Macbook (A1181), which is running Mavericks.
    BootCamp is version 3.2
    Partition is Windows XP Professional 32-bit, Service Pack 2.

    As the title states, my video feed on Skype (and other video/voice conference services) is very choppy and often freezes up. The video of whoever I'm in a call with is always completely fine, though. Of course when booted into OSX, this isn't an issue at all.

    Is there a Microsoft driver I missed and need?
    I've tried Googling my issue but I'm not getting the type of results I need.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks. :)

    Bump! :)

    I also wanted to note that I do have the basic drivers installed from my old Snow Leopard installation disc. I tried running a repair with it today. I get a window where the title says the repair has been completed but the content in the window says an error has occurred before the drivers can finish repairing.

    think the issue is purely your machine and OS not being to efficiently handle that video; is there a settings where you can make it as low res as possible
