Hoe do I get video chat working with skype?

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
