No webacm access(Skype)

I keep getting this intermittent problem on Skype where I get an error message 'cannot access webcam close down applications that may be using/showing video??'
The only way I resolve this is reinstalling the webcam software..... until the next time.

Thanks in advance

In Skype Tools>Options>Video Settings, make sure Enable Skype Video is ticked, that your webcam is set under Select webcam, and that you can see yourself in that window. You should not need to click on the Webcam Settings button.

Then make sure that you click on Save!
