Generally speaking: Yes, Skype videocalling works on Android tablets.

Which device are you trying it on? Did you also read the instructions on how to enable videocalling for untested devices here:

Please always include as many details as possible: Operating system, Skype version, screenshots...

I'm sorry to say that Skype for Android tablets is a piece of crap. The last working version on my Motorola Xoom was 2.5.
