Via the Skype Community, I've stumbled across a solution. By Installing Manycam, its enabled me to get a picture on Skype for Desktop on my Advent 5313 Windows 8 laptop with integrated webcam. The Skype, Tools, Options, Video Settings USB2.0 Camera option still doesn't work, but the Manycam Video Source option does work. It's been a long slog to find a solution, but it seems I'm there. Great!
