Video messing up upon placing call but webcam is fine

My webcam works perfectly fine when i test it in skype. However, when I place a video call my video goes from perfect to flickering green and pink with no clear video and nothing fixes it. tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, unplugging and replugging the camera, deleting skype and redownloading it and turning the video on and off. Don't know what to do at this point

Is it the video of yourself or the video of your conversation partner that is distorted?
