windows 8 skype webcam not working?

Just bought a brand new sony vaio laptop with windows 8 and I am trying to use skype.  I can use the instant messaging part and when I try a video call I can see my friends video and hear them but they can only hear but not see me, any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Did you check for updated webcam drivers from Sony? Please check their support ressources for details on that: http ://esupport.sony.com/

I installed an earlier version of Skype and now my webcam works fine. Might be a solution until the Windows 8 version of Skype is sorted
