Lost Video with update

I just updated to latest version of Skype on my WIn 7 x64 laptop.  My webcam is no longer working to make video calls.  I get the message "Can't start video.  try closing other programs that might be using your webcam."  

 

It worked just fine before the update.  I tried closing all other programs too, but no dice.  Help??
