I have read that the Veo Camera uses a Video format that is incompatible with Skype. I have also found that some have had success using Splitcam to control your Veo camera, and then setting Skype to use Splitcam as the camera of choice.
Download Splitcam from www.splitcamera.com
Install it, run it, click on the Video button and select your webcam. Click on the on button. You will see your face.
Now go to Skype>Tools>Options>Video Setting and select Splitcam as your webcam.
If this doesn't work, you will more than likely need to get a new camera that is compatible with Skype.
go to www.splitcamera.com
Install the program... then run the application..
click on file, video source, veo mobile/advanced web camera
(you should see yourself in the application window)
then open you skype
click on tools, options, video settings
choose splitcam capture, save
worked for me..
I found this answer on the skype forums
Hope it helps you
