Have you been able to resolve this? My husband uses a tablet also and the people he skypes with also just see a green screen. It previously worked fine.

Re: They can see me, but I can't see them

We have the same issue. Our mom can't see us, but can hear us. We can see and hear her. We are on OSx with Skype 5.5 and they are on Windows with 5.8. We tested it with our sister and our sister can see and hear us. And we can see and hear her. She calls mom and she can see and hear mom, but mom can't see her. Just started last week. Believe it is associated with the latest version of WIndows Skype.

Re: They can see me, but I can't see them

I had same problem: they saw and heat me but I couldn't see them (i heard them ok).

I solved this problem many times (either pc or mac, wind xp, winf 7 etc) with turning off antivirus software (in my case avg free) and firewall on both devices/computers. Hope it helps someone.

You have to visit: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12252/why-can-t-i-make-video-calls-on-the-latest-version-of-skype...
And download an older version of Skype to use it properly until they fix this issue.
