video chat not working

Saw other similar posts but not sure it is the same problem:  Using skype 6.2 on Mac (recent upgrade and was working fine prior to...) - when I try to make a video call the video icon at the bottom of the screen has a red line through it - when I try to click the icon to get rid of the red line and enable video, it stays "clicked" with the red line, and a dialogue box pops up saying "skype video is turned off" (or something along those lines).  There does not seen to be anything to adjust in preferences to fix this, and I just keep clicking the icon with no progress...The camera works in other contexts...  Any ideas??

Re: video chat not working

Unfortunately, downloading a Windows version won't do anything to solve problems on a Mac. It may well be that rcjaffe5 has solved the problem he/she posted 3 months ago by upgrading to Mac v6.5.
