Skype isn't finding my webcam.  I run Windows 8.1 and it works on Yahoo Messenger and it works on its own but it's not showing up in Skype.

Are you on a Surface RT tablet or using a laptop?


If you're using a laptop or a Surface Pro, you could try installing Skype for Desktop (can be found hereand checking if your camera works there.
