Doesn't give me option of video calling

I just got a web cam for my desk top, hooked it up and it works. When I log in to Skype it doesn't highlight the box to make a video call.  It will allow me to make a profile picture so there is some connection.  Any thoughts???  thx

A contact has to be online for Skype to show you the bright green Video call button.  Is the contact you're trying to call online?

What happens if you right click on a contact who is online?   Is there a Video call option there?

 

If so, what happens if you click that menu choice?
