Skype for Business meetings utilize video options from previous sessions you have created. If you schedule a new Skype for Business meeting without a camera, or without editing the video options, any new meeting you create will not have video capability.

Enable video for a new Skype Meeting space:

  1. Ensure that your camera and microphone are working and enabled
  2. Start with scheduling a Skype for Business meeting by clicking the New Skype Meeting button from the Outlook Calendar view

  3. Click on Meeting Options.
