I have an xp system with a webcam and an ipad2. I loaded skype on the 2 systems, but just not sure how to get it working between them. I have setup and account.

How do I get this working without paying?

    You need to login into skype with both devices with separate accounts.
    Then add the user accounts of the two to the contact list.
    when this has been done, click on user in contact list and click on start video call.
    User on device two will accept and video chat away.

    skype is free for video chat, if you utilize the land line calling feature you'll have to pay.
    But Microsoft now owns skype, so who knows how long that'll last....
