No further info is available from Apple yet.
Wait for a solution from Apple. They are investigating the issue.

I Have literally looked over every possible solution from resetting the SMC to running scripts to enable/ disable the camera OR even adjusting the Quicktime plugins.
This is certianly an issue with the Macbook Air Mid 2013 models ONLY.
I am running 10.8.5 on my MacBook Air with Camera Model
Model ID: Apple Camera VendorID_0x106B ProductID_0x1570
Also, i did try and check this on my other 15"Mac Book Pro running 10.8.5 but it works perfectly well.
My Facetime HD Camera works with PhotoBooth, iChat, Facetime and NOT on Webex and Skype.
So much for getting the latest and the greatest.

Occasionally third party hardware/software will not function properly following
an hardware/software update/upgrade from Apple.
That holds true for any such vendor.

Thanks Dominic for your reply. I wonder why it's taking that long to investigate such a simple issue. Another issue with my MacBook Air is: it does not communicate with my iPhone5 bluetoothly! I am not bothered by this that much as there are hundreds of available communication ways between the 2 devices. However, it still annoys me that 2 products from Apple cannot do such a simple communication! Literally I'm not using the bluetooth in my Mac at all and I wonder why it even exists!

Apple released an update couple of days ago. The new update resolves the issue.
Download and install this Combo Update.
