Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have all Windows updates and updates to your system and any hardware devices by the manufacturers?
Please see these:
If you are using WIN7 then please see this: http://community.skype.com/t5/Video/video-not-work
Also, you can use the Skype client program window at anytime and do:
Hellp -> Call Quality Guide -> Sound Check Wizard
Note: The Sound Check Wizard also supports Video as well.
A new version has just been released August 02, 2011:
Please click the "Get Skype" link at the top of this page and download the normal version of Skype, NOT the beta version to get this new version.
This new version is 184.108.40.206 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:

If you are talking of Skype 5.5.x, the self video is dark and small when you first see a conversation window. After you found it, you may drag it anywhere and resize it from one of its corners. Compare a small and a big self video on this screenshot:
Hello. I've used Skype a few times and I always have my camera's picture of me in a small box on the same screen as the person I'm speaking with. The last time I Skyped, the person's video picture was small and my box was obscuring them, so I dragged it off to the side. After doing this, the person I was Skyping with said they couldn't see me anymore and I was unable to retrieve my box. Do you know what happened? I logged out, re-started everything and the problem remained. I'm thinking there has to be an easy fix to this. Thank you.
