Facetime camera does not work with FaceTime App or Skype. It seems to be stuck between the two. One will work, then the camera gets stuck and won't release it and neither app can use it. The SMR trick doesn't work.
This is a brand new 13" MBP.
Try uninstalling then reinstalling Skype on you mac and see if that does the trick if it does not then look for drivers or a software update
