Still NOT WORKING ON LATEST SKYPE ? Sounds like the old days when MICROSOFT was F&^%$N with MAC users in Microsoft Orifice and INTERNET Destroyer (NO SUPPORT) as soon as I Heard MICROSOFT bought out Skype I knew we were doomed.
Brand New Macbook Air 2013 w/SSD drive- purchased 9-2013, I will downgrade to an older version as a last try and try the virtual camera tip 1st! LOL, of course did not find this out until I was in Europe and trying to dial home USA.
Skype works fine with built in iSight on our OSX 10.6 MacBook? WHO DROPPED THE BALL on this fiasco? Each side will balame the other side (the same story continues in tech arena). I want my $10 in SKYPE credit doubled...
Here's the kicker
Please correct the highlighted errors and try again.
WHY NOT TELL US IN THE FORM NOT TO USE MORE THAN FIVE 5 TAGS? Why would we expect anything else, Skype didn't do video, Skype's form didn't do correct communication?

I have two airbooks with one with OS X 10.8.4 and the other 10.8.5 both with Skype 6.9
I'm having the same problem with the 10.8.5 machine (works in everything but Skype) and I've tried all the suggestions above.
On the 10.8.4 system I don't even have the directory
there is no AppleCamera.plugin and the camera works in all applications. On a third MAC (MBP) I deleted the AppleCamera.plugin and it still works so I don't think it's that file that is the problem?
Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Supplemental Update
"Resolves an issue that may prevent certain applications from using the FaceTime HD camera on mid-2013 MacBook Air systems"
Also, please update Skype to the latest version 6.9 (517) by running "Check for updates..." in Skype.
How did you get yours to work? I've also downloaded ManyCam and my camera works for a few seconds and then it freezes and doesnt work after that... Need help!!!
