Resolved Question:

On skype I can see myself but can't see other person. Other person can see themselves and me, so it's not their camera. Don't know if it matters but they have a Mac, I have a pc

thanks for your question.

its their webcam.. they can see themselves that means their camera is on but its not transmitting.

ask them to go to this website and see if they can see themselves.

ask them to restart the computer and make sure all other programs that use webcam are closed. at one time only one program can use the webcam.

If all else fails then reinstall SKYPE and restart your computer.
