Hi ,
I would like to assist your with this .

Please setup Skype to use your camera automatically .

1 Load the Skype application.

2 Open the Skype Preferences using the top screen drop down menus.

3 Click on the Video Tab .

4 Select your camera from the option "Camera"

5 Check on the Enable Skype video option .

6 Check on the Enable , when im am in call "start my video automatically".

7 Apply and close the Skype preferences.

8 Login to Skype as normal and make a video call.

If you are having problems please reboot and make sure the USB camera is plugged directly in to the Mac ,
not via hubs or the Mac "keyboard" USB ports if any.

Open the Skype application , and within the Skype Preferences for Video , make sure your USB camera is selected .
If the camera is still not found , please install this extra driver to hopefully correct the problem ,
as some USB cameras are not supported directly by OSX .

Please install this driver software :-

After Mac cam is installed please reboot , and try to select your USB camera webcam for use in the Skype application as outlined before .

Please let me know how you proceed .

If you have any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps ,

Thanks .
