1. Yes. Totally safe if it is a Skype-to-Skype call. 

2. No. All Skype-to-Skype calls are fully encrypted.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

If my advice helped to fix your issue please mark it as a solution to help others.

Re: Can video call be hacked

just to add up, having a fully updated, trusted, and reliable anti-virus/firewall would also keep your account and conversations much more secured.
