How to get webcam to work on Skype Windows 8.1

Hi people, I simply cannot get my inbuilt webcam Windows 8.1 on my laptop to work on Skype!! I have done the setting for microphone and cam however, where there is a video option, it's blank. Iv'e tried everything!! In the end, I used my iPad and that worked fine!! If anyone knows what I'm missing, would be great. I can hear and see the other person and they can hear but not see me. Many thanks if you can help.

First check your webcam is functioning (drivers installed etc)

My point is if skype cannot see it then it's possibly not recognised by Win 8.1

there are problems with the new skype release. find a older version and ur cam will work ;)

Many thanks all for your replies, I still cannot get it to function. The cam does work via the camera tile so it is functioning however, it's not happening on Skype for some reason. I'll stick to the iPad for now. Thanks again.
