I have a problem with the moving image of me displayed on skype when I am in a conversation with another person on skype who has a webcam. They can see me perfectly - I can see them. The problem is the small 'live video' pic of me on the skype screen keeps showing a still pic taken by the webcam - I just cannot get the live video up. Does anyone know what I need to do to get this working ok? I have the latest version of skype installed

So far that I know you cannot delete messages on Skype. Sorry but I have tried and could not find a way to delete messages, only hide them. To hide messages click on the person you chatted with and then go to the top of the screen and click 'Conversation' then click 'Hide Conversation' Hope this helps.
If you don't see the person you are chatting with on Skype, the issue is probably on their hardware. You do need to "Enable Video Call" from the Skype app's Menu after initiating a video call. If you aren't seen on the other party's side of the call, then it's your device settings that must be adjusted.
Does your tablet have a front-facing camera and Android version 2.3 or better? (The M18A is listed as having Android 4.0) If so, then you should be able to video chat with the Skype app. When you use the rear-facing camera, obviously there are issues with the other party seeing you.
If you have a front-facing camera, make sure that this is the default camera while the Skype app is closed. Open the default camera app and tap the icon to toggle the front camera interface (if needed). Then switch to video mode. Return to the home screen and open the Skype app. Login and start a video call. Then press Menu (in the app) and "Enable Video Call".
If this doesn't work, you may need the IP Webcam app. This is available at the Play Store. After setting the default camera, set the resolution and the frame capture rate, among other settings. Next, follow the directions for using Skype for a video call.
