ipad 3 video call camera icon not active

I  just put Skype on my new ipad3 and when I make a video call the camera icon, on the bottom with volume and end call icon, is not active and I can't see my self.  How do I activate this icon?  I have skype on my laptop and never had this problem.

Did you get a solution to your problem. As we recently bought an ipad and are facing the same problem. I coudl do voice calling on skype but the video button just is not active. Do i really need to buy a camera app to get the video activated?? and can you suggest any if so??

Did you receive a response/solution?  I have the same issue ... iPad3, iOS6, Skype 4.1.1324 and I cannot initiate video (i.e., the video camera icon at the bottom of the Skype screen is not activated).  As with you, I have been using Skype on my laptop without any problems.

I have the same problem. Previously I had video calls on Skype working on my iPad, but now the video call option does not appear. I can view another persons camera if they start the video call from their end, but it still doesn't show my camera.

I never got a reply, but with a newer version of the Skype app it was fixed.
