    Do you want to disable it so that you can use an external webcam? If not another webcam, for what purpose do you need to disable the camera?

    if you dont want video to start when you are starting a call:

    go to Skype - preferences

    click the "calls" tab and uncheck "Start video Automatically."

    if you want to use a different camera, go to audio/video and pick your camera from the drop down menu.

    if your camera isnt there, make sure you have correctly installed the drivers for it.

    I had the same issue. Just restart your computer. The camera should show up again.
