Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me please.

I am running macOS High Sierra with the latest Skype update.

Since the most recent Skype update to the new Skype, when I am on a video call the entire screen often freezes, the camera freezes and the sound stops for a about 5 seconds. This can happen every minute or so, or sometimes just a few times in a 25 minute call, it's very sporadic. A couple of times my computer has totally frozen and I can only hear the person's voice. I then have to force shutdown my computer and reboot.

Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks so much!

Does your Macbook battery come out?

If so, take it out for 60 seconds.

If it doesnt, then follow these instructions:
