You're welcome. Although you must start from the install CD or another OS X 10.4 disk to repair your 10.4.x startup DISK, you can repair disk PERMISSIONS when booted from your normal startup disk.

David Kenning wrote. Any idea what I can try next? As I understand your writings here, you have already unsuccessfully tried everything that has already been suggested to this point. If that is correct, here are four more suggestions you can try in any order you choose: (1) Restart Mac. Repair permissions.
Then download and reinstall. Repair permissions again immediately after the restart that completes the Combo Update. Properly applying the latest Combo update version for your OS X can sometimes correct software problems.
However, if your trouble is caused by a hardware problem, you will need help from an Apple-Authorized Service Provider. (2) If your problem remains, reinstall OS X 10.4.11 to see if that corrects it. If you do not have a backup of your Mac OS from a time when your it was known to be working properly, you can or your Apple retailer to get a replacement Install disk. Have your MacBook's Serial Number when you call.
(3) If reinstalling OS X does not correct your problem, backup your MacBook. Then make an appointment to or an Apple-Authorized Service Provider. (4) If possible, find and use a different video chat app that works on your Mac. If you MUST use Skype, use a different computer.

Like a phone. You can call older phones. Skype has 'enhanced video connections' by changing something in the protocol such that newer Skype versions will no longer do video chats with older ones. Windows 6.1 is the last one which will video chat with Skype 22.214.171.1246. I'd had this problem with my girlfriend and my brother when they upgraded to Skype 6.2 on Windows, I could no longer chat with them. My parents had the same problem, they could no longer video chat with their grandchildren with their iMac G5.
Skype is heartless. When they downgraded their Skype to 6.1 which can still be found on the web. Then video chats worked again. Everyone should report this to Skype as a BUG. So let them create a new video protocol for newer machines, it should still 'downgrade' to the older one when talking to older Skype versions. They are installing Skype in TVs. How long will they work without upgrading?
