The problem your having is likely due to the cam your using being a v4l2 device where skype is most happy with v4l1 devices.

To get skype going with your device you should go to a console, and run the following commands to launch skype.
(Make sure you quit skype if it's currently running.)

Then in a console:

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/

If you're running a 64bit distro then you should follow the instructions here.
