Only those who have webcam can be viewed by the other person on Skype. So if you have a webcam and your chatmate doesn't have a webcam, your chatmate can view you but you can't view him/her.

No.

Is's ok to have only one cam.

You can see the video from your oposite if they have a cam.
Or if only you have a cam the other party should be able to see you.

Webcam not Connected ( to your Messenger ) can usually be overcome by setting your Messenger Internet Connection

MESSENGER INTERNET CONNECTION

Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'No proxies' or 'Connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes, If not change them > Apply > OK

Cant view webcams in chat rooms


some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.

Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)
