If you are using a Logitech webcam, please follow the steps below:
NB! To begin with please close Skype and make sure that you have unplugged the webcamera before installing the installation software that came with it.
1) Go to the control panel and open Add/Remove programs. Then from there uninstall any Logitech webcam software and Logitech webcam drivers from the list shown.
2) Download the latest drivers for your webcam from http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=roeu,en?prodcrid=405

Do you have a router installed between your Skype installation and the other person. Does the other person have a router installed? Are you both using high speed connections i.e. a good broadband connection. Even cable will sometimes cause problems. If you and he has a router in your configurations, then verify that ports necessary for video transmission are open on both ends of the connections.
