Which version of Skype are you using?
Does your camera work properly in Windows 8 Camera App?

I am using fujitsu laptop with built in camera, Windows 8.  Camera works when I click on app. There is no video call button  on Skype just the green phone button so I can chat but no one can see me. I can see them.
