Have you tried clicking on the camera button during a call or checking "Tools" - "Options" - "Video Settings" to see if Skype even detects your installed camera?

Yes but the video button is grayed out so I cannot put webcam on. It is working on the computer just not in skype.

Webcam is working on the computer but in skype it is not working and the box with video/webcam is grayed out so I cannot do anything to turn it on.

What exactly is the version of Skype program installed on your computer? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.

My video call button is grayed over and I can't get it working I've tried tools-options-video settings and there is no on or off button for the webcam. Help?

Can you see your camera video feed under "Tools" - "Options" - "Video Settings"?

 

If Skype does not detect  your camera, then you will not be able to use it.  If you are using a processor that is not fully Pentium 4 compatible (like AMD socket/slot A processors), your video will not be detected in Skype though it may work elsewhere.
