How to fix this

Try using another software that accepts webcam input, like VLC or Cheese. Do they pick up the webcam?

I've heard there are lots of problems with Skype For Linux not having permissions/access to video/ausio hardware.

User group membership maybe?

Rather restrictions by Microsoft, I fear. Skype seems to support only a number of webcams on some whitelist and does not support others.
