Hey
I got a MacBook 4,1(I think, got to check once I get home) and I am trying to use iSight for Skype. I have followed the wiki and done everything. When I call someone on Skype, the sound is clear, and they can hear me, but when I turn my video on, I can see them, but the iSight isn't picking anything up for me. Any ideas?

did you run the tests to verify that the iSight works?

completely shutdown your mac, and startup again (not reboot).

If that doesn't help, try resetting your SMC controller.
