Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Its very unlikely a camera can move on its own, or be controlled remotely, unless you have a very, very expensive webcam.  In Skype you can also view your camera along with the other party’s, so I’m not sure how you wouldn’t be able to tell.
