Webcam and Skype not working properly

I recently bought a new HP Spectre x360 laptop and installed Ubuntu 15.10. (I originally went with a later version but I was encountering lots of bugs. This version seems to be more stable for my system).

Things are mostly working okay, but not my webcam.

If I go to a website to test it, it's very grainy and the colours are weird.

If I try to Skype, as soon as I go on a video call, I can only seen a small part of my face in the webcam and it's grainy. Additionally, the whole interface goes crazy and flickers strange colours.

Extra information: My screen resolution 3840 x 2160 is but everything was tiny and so I changed it to 2048 x 1152.

Could someone advise the direction in which I should be putting my efforts!

cd -- change working directory
cd directory
Directory is an absolute or relative pathname which becomes the new working directory. The interpretation of a relative pathname by cd depends on the CDPATH environment variable (see below).
The following environment variables affect the execution of cd: CDPATH If the directory operand does not begin with a slash (/) character, and the first component is not dot (.) or dot-dot (..), cd searches for the directory relative to each directory named in the CDPATH variable, in the order listed. The new working directory is set to the first matching directory found. An empty string in place of a directory pathname represents the current directory. If the new working directory was derived from CDPATH, it will be printed to the standard output. HOME If cd is invoked without arguments and the HOME environment variable exists and contains a directory name, that directory becomes the new working directory. See csh(1) for more information on environment variables. The cd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
csh(1), pwd(1), sh(1), chdir(2)
The cd command is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible.
