You need to check the Video Settings in Skype.
Start Skype - click on Options - Video Settings, select the WEBcam that is is installed on the laptop (if it is not listed then the WEBcam driver is not installed) and under Automatically Receive Video from - select Anyone or Only people in my contact list.

Launch the Logitech QuickCam or Webcam software on your computer. Verify that you see yourself Logitech Webcam software window. Close the software window. Sign in to Skype. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click "Video Settings," check the "Enable Skype Video" and "Start my video automatically when I am in a call" boxes. Select your Logitech QuickCam from the drop-down list. Your webcam should display video in the window. Click "Audio Settings" if your QuickCam has a built-in microphone and select it from the microphone drop-down list. Check the "Let Skype adjust my audio settings" box in "Audio Settings" so Skype recognizes your microphone. Click "Save" to save the options for your audio and video settings. Skype will close the options menu.

Built in web cam not recognised in flash player of skype

Check that you have updated drivers of your webcam software. More times than not, it's the reason why Skype won't recognize it.
Also, go into Skype and make sure that you have the correct webcam selected under the Video section.

My webcam is really blurry on skype and no one can see me . Help Me!!

all you can do is ensure the lens is clean without removing the bezel and manually adjusting the focus. if its less than two years old its enough reason to have acer fix it if you give them a call.
