okay, so when I video called my friend, my camera was off. I was like whatever, and I tried to turn it on, but even when Skype said it was on, I couldn't see the little rectangle of me that I'm supposed to see, and my friend couldn't see me. HELP!!!

Did you try to simply end the call and call back to see if that helped?  Or if not, quit and restart Skype to see if that made a difference?

 

If neither of those tricks works:

 

What version of Skype are you running?  Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.

 

What version of Windows?  XP?  Vista?  Win 7?

 

And what type webcam?

I ended the call multiple times, and I did exit Skype and go back. none of that helped. I'm using Skype on an apple iPod, so I'm using that webcam. and I'm running version 4.1.1324.

Ummmm....are you aware you posted in the Video on Windows forum?  Let me move your post to a more appropriate board and you'll stand a better chance of getting a helpful answer.

Look for a solution in the Win 8 forum, or post your problem with details there:
